Dear Friends, October 17, 2019

We are pleased to share with you the Drawdown Solutions Resource List. This is a searchable and growing database of organizations, companies, information, and initiatives, categorized by Drawdown sector and solution. Its purpose is to foster collaboration and help people find where they fit into the big picture of reversing global warming.

Just to be clear, this is not a comprehensive list, but rather a collaborative work-in-progress (see below). We hope it will help more people get involved in the climate movement according to their interests, time, and talents. Please share this list broadly with others who might be interested.

How you can use the database:

  • You can use it to EXPLORE a topic/solution you are interested in. For example, you could look at all the entries under "Energy - Rooftop Solar", to find articles, videos, company and organization websites (which often have a lot of information), along with local, state, and federal initiatives.

  • You can use it to get into ACTION. You could use it, for instance, to JOIN a group that is already active, FOSTER COLLABORATION among existing organizations/groups, and/or START A PROJECT of your own.

  • You can use it in other creative ways. Steps to accessing the database:

    1. DOWNLOAD the attached PDF. You must download it for the links embedded in the PDF to work properly.

    2. Open the PDF. You’ll see that it lists the 80 Drawdown solutions, grouped by the seven sectors (Buildings &

      Cities, Energy, Food, Land Use, Materials, Transport, Women & Girls).

    3. To access the FULL database, click near the top of the PDF document, where indicated. OR, to access ONE OF

      THE SEVEN SECTORS and its related solutions, click on the appropriate section. NOTE: as you hover your mouse over each Drawdown solution sector, you will see a small “hand” icon indicating that an active URL or “link” is available to click on. You can’t click on individual solutions, only on the Drawdown sector as a whole.

    4. Once the database opens up in your browser window, it is searchable by you, using the search box in the upper righthand corner of the database view. You may also print the list of resources or download it to a .CSV file if desired. To do so, click on the ellipsis icon on the tool bar at the top of the database view.

If you want to ADD items to the database:

  •  You can click on the link on the second page of the PDF to: "Add a NEW Drawdown Sector Resource to the Database", which will take you to an online data entry FORM. In order to fill in this form, you need to know which sector and solution your item belongs in.

  • If you don't want to complete the online data entry form, you can send the resource link, with a description, to: priscilla.auchincloss@gmail.com.

    If you find errors or have questions, concerns, or praises, send them to: priscilla.auchincloss@gmail.com. We look forward to hearing from you about how this list works for you.


Wishing you delightful collaborations and meaningful action,

Sue, Al, and Priscilla
