Drawdown Learn

Drawdown Learn is a broad initiative to encourage education and learning about climate solutions based on Project Drawdown’s research, analysis, and insights. Through our programs and partnerships, we are helping educators and students of all ages to understand the solutions available to address the climate crisis and create new ways of teaching and learning about Drawdown solutions.

The Drawdown Learn Teachers Network

This network is an online community of connected educators who are teaching climate solutions in K-12 schools, colleges, and universities using Project Drawdown’s research and analysis as a resource. If you are a classroom teacher in any discipline, and you are using or considering using Drawdown in your curriculum or course, you are invited to connect, share, and collaborate with other professional educators.

Drawdown On-Line Classes

Drawdown Learn introduces a new series of webinars taught by Project Drawdown Executive Director Dr. Jonathan Foley. As a renowned climate scientist and former university professor, Dr. Foley provides a framework for understanding the spectrum of proven climate solutions that are currently being implemented in the world today.

Classes will include:

  • An Introduction to the Science Behind Climate Solutions
  • Taking Personal Actions on Climate Change (early 2020)
  • The Global Food System and Climate Change (early 2020)

Drawdown Action Guides

These upcoming guides help individuals and communities to take action on Drawdown solutions. Explore impactful actions you can take to help the world reach drawdown through your everyday lifestyle choices. Discover how you can multiply your impact for a climate-safe future. 

Partner Programs

Through select partnerships, Project Drawdown is bringing solutions to climate change into schools through collaborations with learning organizations and classroom teachers. Here are some of our partner programs that are underway now:


Students on stage at the Drawdown Learn Conference

The Drawdown Learn Conference, hosted by our partner Omega Institute, brings together members of Project Drawdown’s team, educators, curriculum developers, students, librarians, community groups, researchers, local officials, and other interested parties to share their experiences and ideas about integrating Drawdown into teaching and learning.

In addition to the 2019 in-person event, a livestream of the live event is provided. You can watch videos-on-demand of the 2018 Drawdown Learn Conference here.

The Drawdown EcoChallenge is a 21-day engagement program created by our partner and aimed at helping individuals learn about Drawdown solutions and contribute to reversing global warming through individual and team actions.

Drawdown EcoChallenge provides tools and inspiration to turn intention into action, and gives participants a fun and social way to think about and act on proven solutions to reverse global warming. Over eighty actions within seven challenge categories provide participants with diverse options to reduce their carbon footprint.

National Council for Science and the Environment logo

The National Council for Science and the Environment, in collaboration with Drawdown Learn, is adapting Drawdown into curricula templates for use by faculty and administrators in higher education.

This joint fellowship initiative will make Project Drawdown’s work even more accessible and enable its integration into more courses and classrooms.

The NCSE and Project Drawdown joint initiative seeks to:

  • Make the solutions outlined in Drawdown more accessible to faculty and administrators in higher education.
  • Translate the 100 solutions outlined in Drawdown into curriculum templates that can be used across disciplines on college and university campuses.
  • Fit curriculum templates into existing courses or form the foundation of an entirely new course if a course related this initiative does not exist at a college or university campus.
