2019<https://www.eomega.org/workshops/drawdown-learn-conference> Drawdown Learn Discounted Passes for Our Regional Community

Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, Rhinebeck, NY

October 18-20, 2019


Dear Regional Education Community,

In order to reverse global warming, it’s time for everyone to get involved—to connect and partner, and to weave together disparate efforts into local, regional, and global solutions-oriented movements.  And what better way than by engaging with and supporting the young people who have the largest stake in our efforts?  Since the nonprofit, environmental organization Project Drawdown published Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming in 2017, schools, community groups, nonprofits, governments, businesses, and individuals have been galvanized by the solutions-based blueprint.

The Omega Center for Sustainable Living (OCSL) is happy to announce that we have a block of heavily discounted tickets for regional schools and community partners to attend the upcoming Drawdown Learn Conference<http://www.eomega.org/drawdown> taking place October 18-20, 2019.

There will be sessions for educator professional development, youth organizing & resource sharing, updates on the Project Drawdown<http://www.drawdown.org> research, unpacking the Green New Deal, understanding our role in strengthening the Paris Agreement, the importance of working with indigenous partners, climate psychology, eco-anxiety, effective climate communication, and much more!
