Inspired by the work of Project Drawdown, Blair Beasley supports research for Drawdown Georgia, a first-of-its-kind, state-centered initiative to crowdsolve for climate change. The goal is to achieve drawdown—the point where greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere begin to decline to stabilize our climate. Drawdown Georgia is a regional-scale, collaborative initiative focused on five high-impact solutions areas of electricity, transportation, buildings & materials, food & agriculture, and land sinks, to drastically cut carbon emissions. The project is funded by the Ray C. Anderson Foundation, where Blair currently works as the Director of Climate Strategies. Drawdown Georgia has created a dynamic and climate-leaderful network, with positive impacts that improve environmental and community health. It is a collaboration of many organizations, entities, and initiatives across Georgia of which the Ray C. Anderson Foundation is a part.
