Global change requires local action! While the climate crisis has been well articulated at the global level by the United Nations, national governments, and scientific consensus, climate solutions still require community-scale responses. Ancient human wisdom and modern ingenuity provide us an array of effective tools, but it is up to us to implement them within our own communities. How can we best leverage the tools we have available? What are the right questions to ask next? How can we achieve broader engagement in climate action? Crystal Chissell of Project Drawdown will bring a global carbon-reduction perspective to these questions, and to the role that buildings and building professionals have to play.
