The Drawdown Fellowship fosters the development of a new cohort of climate leadership working on pragmatic solutions to reverse global warming.
"It is a privilege and honor to participate in one of the most important projects of our time and be able to be in regular contact with some of the world's brightest and committed climate change solutions researchers -- the Drawdown Fellows."
- Kevin Bayuk, Senior Fellow - Financial Analysis
Our aim is to democratize and extend the Drawdown model and approach to collective impact.
Central to this effort is the Drawdown Fellowship Program. This unique opportunity brings together a community of passionate researchers working to help achieve a shared goal to reverse global warming. The fellowship combines collaborative research assignments, pragmatic trainings, and access to the global Drawdown Coalition.
Drawdown Fellows will incorporate new research and data into models that measure and map progress towards drawdown. To ensure research remain meaningful and useful to current and future audiences, all data must be monitored, refreshed, and updated when new data arises. As costs fluctuate, performance varies, measurements improve, and technologies become more efficient, new information generated enriches our understanding of the potential impacts of solutions.
Drawdown Fellows are initiating the next phase of drawdown research through team-based, collaborative modeling evaluating solutions at different scales, e.g. at municipal, state, or regional. The variability of biophysical and socioeconomic conditions across scales means that the application of technologies, practices, and policies are best informed by research at local and regional contexts.
In parallel, new metrics for evaluating solutions will be co-developed incorporating accelerators and enablers of adoption, and map results to social, economic, and ecological indicators most relevant to decision-makers at scale.
Fellows are at the heart of Project Drawdown's research program. With a diversity of backgrounds and coming from around the world, Drawdown Fellows are at the forefront of research on solutions to global warming.
The Research Fellowship is a six-month program focused on solution research and global and regional modeling. Research Fellows work together with the senior research team to collect data, conduct meta-analyses, and map results to social and economic indicators.
Senior Fellows work as part of an interdisciplinary team of researchers and modelers that lead research, analysis, and modeling of Drawdown solutions. These subject matter experts oversee and advise work conducted by Research Fellows, and represent Project Drawdown as the principal point-of-contact for their subject areas.
