Carbon Drawdown Now! Achieving Climate Crisis Healing with Low-Rise Buildings 

04-14-2021 03:15 PM

Hope is ignited when solutions can be seen clearly, and positive action taken immediately. We can store atmospheric carbon in the buildings we create using plant-based and other carbon-storing healthy materials, leading to carbon drawdown from the atmosphere and the reversal of climate change. By focusing on low-rise buildings, we create the opportunity for everyday tradespeople and residents, as well as architects, contractors, and engineers, to develop networks of information, materials, and trade in a democratic, cooperative, and socially-just manner. The presenters will use case study, data, and material examples in this intermediate-level presentation.
