Welcome Carbon CREW!

Over the course of the next month and a half, we will hold five 80-minute Zoom sessions. We use the 2040 Handbook based on Project Drawdown as our main resource, reading it weekly chapter by chapter.

We  finish with an inspiring time and a new set of kindred friends, with a plan to reduce our personal household carbon footprint over the next 5 years. And with a plan to co-host a future CREW using our Guide’s Guide with ongoing support.

Preparation includes:

  • Taking the CNN quiz
  • Calculating your Earth Overshoot Day
  • Buying or downloading the 2040 Handbook by Damon Gameau, reading the forward and introduction and noting several ideas to share at our first session. (It’s a very quick read).
  • If you haven’t seen it yet you will probably love seeing the first hour of Paul Hawken’s YouTube from Seattle

Plan to be on video – it builds community! We start and end on time.  And if you have to miss a session, it will be recorded for you.

Check out all 5 session outlines to get familiar with how the session are structured.
