We are a grassroots action group working to build a sustainable and resilient Albuquerque. We are kicking the fossil fuel habit as individuals, neighborhoods, and as a city. We are relocalizing our food, education, products, and jobs, lowering our cost of living and improving our health and community spirit. Together, we are capable of coping with the ecological, energy, economic, and equity crises as we become interdependent yet self-reliant.
Join us for our monthly gatherings where we network, discuss sustainability and resilience in Albuquerque, get updates from our work groups, share food, scheme ideas, do activities, and learn something new.
Our next gathering is:
Drawdown: most impactful solutions to the climate dilemma
Wednesday, September 26, 2018, 6:30pm
@ First Unitarian Church
(SW corner of Carlisle & Comanche, map here)
in the the Memorial Hall (smaller room on west side of courtyard).
Potluck at 6:30, discussion 7-8:30pm.
An international coalition of leading researchers, scientists and policymakers came together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to climate change. The book “Drawdown”, edited by Paul Hawken, ranks those solutions by which offer the greatest global carbon reductions. We’ll hear a summary presentation of his book, and its top 20 list of solutions. Then we will compare it to our own “Albuquerque CO2 Pledge” and consider the most impactful actions we can take personally, and as a community.
What to bring*: (*If you can. No one will be turned away!)
- A dish to share for the potluck
- Your ABQ CO2 Pledge if you’ve got one
- A few dollars to help keep Transition ABQ going
We hope to see you there! Tell us you’re coming on the Facebook event.
