– a creative groundswell that focuses on the power of direct, positive action. While there is always a need for better policies and a fairer playing field, we believe that action to implement climate solutions directly builds political will for better policies, while achieving concrete progress.
The solutions we support are the 100 developed by the researchers of Project Drawdown. The timeline we endorse comes from the Exponential Climate Action Road Map, which calls for cutting greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere in half every ten years.
Mission 2020. We look at the period through the end of 2020 as a critical time for shifting course, building momentum, and replacing political chaos with coherence and collaboration. This can only be done with a combination of ambitious goals and inclusive, inspiring communication. We believe that metaphors like “World War II style mobilization” can be paralyzing. We prefer the positive image of the Renaissance, a time of dramatic change driven by humanity’s best impulses and supported by communities of artists, architects, investors and civil servants.
