“Caring for the Future: Drawdown Climate Solutions.”
TODAY Thursday, November 17, 2022
7:00PM via Zoom
Given in loving memory of Gloria Tishkoff
The focus of this presentation is to accelerate and scale the actions that we can take towards creating a climate safe planet. During our time together, we will explore the top ten most important things we can do to get to Drawdown, the point when greenhouse gases have peaked and will start to come down. By the end of the presentation, it is our hope that we will each have discovered an action that fits with our own passions and leverage points to take action for a healthy planet.
Former Director of Missions for the Jewish Federations of North America Missions Department. In the summer of 2022, together with his cousin Bert Cohen and an Israeli climate activist, he launched a pilot course to train 100 Israeli school teachers who teach English and who we envision can then make "Caring For the Future" available to hundreds, if not thousands, of Israeli youth. Currently the Israeli Ministry of Education has engaged us to offer an additional CFF course which we plan to launch in the coming weeks.
Bert Cohen has focused on solutions to the climate crisis presented in the book Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever to Reverse Global Warming by Paul Hawken. With a small international team, he created the course “Caring for the Future: Drawdown Solutions.” Most recently this course has been presented to teachers in a 30-hour teacher training for the Ministry of Education in Israel. Bert’s international involvement goes back many years starting in the 1980s when he founded the Belize-New Hampshire Teacher Program. His global interests continue in his work to create formats on the internet to build learning communities worldwide to take action for the health of the planet.
