Announcing the 2024 Drawdown Georgia Webinar Series

How can we ensure that the clean energy revolution benefits all Georgians, in particular those from previously disinvested communities? 

What impact do coastal wetlands have on climate resiliency, and how can we protect and expand these natural carbon sinks?

Why are communities of faith important players in scaling climate solutions, and how can Georgia houses of worship help us reach our climate goals?

Together with our partners in the climate solutions space, we’ll be exploring all of these questions and more in our 2024 series of free webinars. Keep reading to learn more and find out how to sign up.

March 26: Our Resilient Georgia Coast

Co-Host: One Hundred Miles

Coastal Wetlands Webinar graphic

Would it surprise you to know that Georgia is home to more tidal wetlands than any other state and that these wetlands are a key climate solution? Coastal wetlands are our first line of defense against hurricanes and tropical storms, and they also sequester significant amounts of carbon in plants and sediments. What is Georgia already doing to protect our coastal wetlands, and what work remains to be done?

Our speakers at this important event will include:

  • Megan Desrosiers, Co-Founder and Executive Director of One Hundred Miles

  • Jill Gambill, Executive Director of the Coastal Equity and Resilience Hub at Georgia Tech

  • Christi Lambert, Marine and Coast Conservation Director at The Nature Conservancy

  • Dawud Shabaka, Associate Director and Environmental Justice Trainer at The Harambee House: Citizens for Environmental Justice

  • Jazz Watts, Justice Strategist at One Hundred Miles

Register now to learn how community-led work is creating climate resilience on the Georgia coast and find out how you can get involved. 

May 2024: Equity and Electrified Transportation

Co-Host: Southern Alliance for Clean Energy

Electric vehicles and e-mobility options like e-bikes represent a tremendous opportunity for Georgians to reduce GHG emissions, but the upfront costs of going electric can present a barrier for many of us. Climate solutions that broaden, rather than limit equitable access are a focus for Drawdown Georgia and the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy. 

Join us for this important webinar to learn about the challenges around electrified transportation and equity, and about the initiatives that seek to make these solutions accessible to all.

Tia and Matthew Raiford with tips on how to take full advantage of fresh summer produce to create delicious, craveable plant-based meals. From their home base at Strong Roots 9 in Brunswick, Georgia, they are leveraging their culinary expertise to raise black voices and support equity in the food world.
