Concept: US-based Project Drawdown has collaborated with global climate innovator ‘Trane Technologies’, financial software innovation company ‘Intuit’, and entrepreneur and philanthropist Chris Kohlhardt to launch a multimedia educational experience on climate change named ‘Climate Solutions 101’. The six-part video experience explains how current solutions can achieve sustainable and inclusive climate transformation, where greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere stop rising and begin to slowly decline.
Nature of Disruption: Climate Solutions 101 is a one-of-a-kind strategy that broadens access to climate knowledge and demonstrates in vivid and compelling detail what can be done now to mitigate climate risks. It is the world’s first major educational effort focusing on sustainable solutions, per the collaboration. This includes up-to-date science as well as interesting perspectives from world leaders in climate policy, research, investment, and other fields. It provides free educational videos on how human intervention can reverse the climate crisis for future generations. Climate Solutions 101 allows audiences to hear from top climate scientists and analysts as they lay out a roadmap for the future of the planet’s climate. This includes experts from weather, paleoclimatology, food and agriculture science, transportation, climatology, global change management, climate and environmental politics, angel investment, and venture capitals. Moreover, Project Drawdown is assisting Intuit in identifying climate solutions and developing the tools required to effect behavior change.
Outlook: Climate change includes both global warming driven by human-induced emissions of greenhouse gases and the resulting large-scale shifts in weather patterns. If steps precautions are not taken to reduce it, the climate models will change, making it impossible to make deterministic, definitive predictions of how and what will happen. Climate Solutions 101 has been designed to fill a demand for productive, science-based educational content that helps people transcend from knowledge to action. The solution aims to offer the world a vision for a climatically safe future if the right actions are performed now. With the mission-aligned partners, Project Drawdown works to share the science and inspiration behind the safest, quickest, and most equitable climate solutions available today.
