Drawdown Newmarket-Aurora
Welcomes You

Vision and Purpose

 

A better world is possible. So many people are concerned about the effects of rapid climate change, feeling helpless to do anything about it.

We must not give in to despair and cynicism. People any age must step up with organizing skills, assistance and funding. We have benefited from reckless industrialization that did not heed the damage caused to the environment. Our kids have the energy needed to drive the campaign forward. All they need is our support and encouragement. This moment is a tipping point, and if we sink into despair and negativity, we will face a bleak future. What have we got to lose?

  • Initially inspired by the book Drawdown by Paul Hawken on climate change.

  • Bring together people from many different walks of life for the common purpose of addressing the threat posed by rapid climate change in our community.

  • Provide opportunity for people to network with each other on this particular issue.

  • Provide for the ability to quickly muster support in favour of actions at the municipal, provincial and federal level to lower greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Climate change affects all people across the political spectrum; therefore the group shall remain non-partisan. and open to all.

Our Mission Statement

Inspired by the international organization Project Drawdown, Drawdown Newmarket-Aurora seeks to engage citizens, institutions, and policymakers in actionable and measurable solutions to stop catastrophic climate change as quickly, safely, and equitably as possible.
