Drawdown Learn

Drawdown Learn™ is a broad initiative to encourage education and learning about climate solutions based on Project Drawdown’s research, analysis, and insights.

Through our programs and partnerships, we engage people of all ages in climate solutions and create new ways of teaching and learning about how the world can reach Drawdown.

Drawdown Learn Partners

EcoChallenge.org

Drawdown Ecochallenge is a 21-day engagement program created by our partner Ecochallenge.org that helps individuals learn about Drawdown solutions and contribute to reversing global warming through individual and team actions.

Drawdown Ecochallenge provides tools and inspiration to turn intention into action, and gives participants a fun and social way to think about and act on proven solutions to reverse global warming. Over eighty actions within seven challenge categories provide participants with diverse options to reduce their carbon footprint, and to see their impact add up in real time.

Omega Institute

The Drawdown Learn Conference, hosted by our partner Omega Institute, brought together members of Project Drawdown’s team, educators, curriculum developers, students, librarians, community groups, researchers, local officials, and other interested parties to share their experiences and ideas about integrating Drawdown into teaching and learning.

Solutions Journalism Network

The Solutions Journalism Network offers robust teaching resources to engage high school and college students in creative and critical thinking about solutions to the climate crisis. 

The Climate Solutions Teaching Collections provide educators with material that is easy to access and integrate into courses across disciplines and that shifts the focus from climate doom and gloom to climate solutions. 

Each Climate Solutions Teaching Collection includes:

  • three or more solutions journalism stories, published by reputable news outlets and curated for educators; 
  • six to eight discussion questions aligned with Bloom’s Taxonomy of cognition to “help teachers teach and students learn;” 
  • robust teaching notes so educators across disciplines can easily integrate solutions-focused climate education into their courses;
  • a copy and customize feature for educators to adapt each collection to align with their course learning outcomes.
