Katharine Wilkinson signs DRAWDOWN About Project Drawdown: Project Drawdown is the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming. Our organization did not make or devise the plan—we found the plan because it already exists. We gathered a qualified and diverse group of researchers from around the world to identify, research, and model the 100 most substantive, existing solutions to address climate change. What was uncovered is a path forward that can roll back global warming within thirty years. It shows that humanity has the means at hand. Nothing new needs to be invented. The solutions are in place and in action. Our work is to accelerate the knowledge and growth of what is possible. We chose the name Drawdown because if we do not name the goal, we are unlikely to achieve it. About Katharine Wilkinson: Katharine Wilkinson, D.Phil., is Senior Writer at Project Drawdown, working to bring Drawdown to life and to the world and translating research into message. She brings with her an interdisciplinary background that cuts across sustainability, strategy, and thought leadership. Previously, Katharine was Director of Strategy at the purpose consultancy BrightHouse. She also has taught at the University of Oxford and worked for the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Boston Consulting Group. Based on her doctoral research at Oxford, Katharine published Between God & Green: How Evangelicals Are Cultivating a Middle Ground on Climate Change (OUP 2012), called “a vitally important, even subversive, story” by The Boston Globe. She holds a D.Phil. in Geography & Environment from Oxford, where she was a Rhodes Scholar, and a B.A. in Religion from Sewanee: The University of the South, where she was a Udall Scholar and valedictorian. Event date: Tuesday, October 3, 2017 - 2:00pm
