“Ethical Markets highly recommends this conference and the research of the Project Drawdown team. Their multi-disciplinary, wide-angle view of the global transition away from the fossilized industrial era to the knowledge-richer, cleaner, greener, more inclusive Solar Age matches our own futures research in our annual Green Transition Scoreboard® report over the past decade, summarized in our forthcoming textbook “Mapping the Global Green Transition, 2009-2020“.
At last in 2021, we see the emergence in the EU, the USA, and 146 other countries of viable “Green New Deals” that can accelerate this global transition to 100% renewably-resourced circular economies, many by 2030. The transition from money-based GDP growth to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is leading to the next economies based on “Transitioning to Science-Based Investing“!

Today, we will explore the theme, Solutions for People and Planet, and kick off our day at 9:00 am ET with welcome remarks from Chad Frischmann, Research Director at Project Drawdown, and our Opening Keynote | Solutions for a Regenerative Economy that Works for All, by Kate Raworth, Co-founder, Doughnut Economics Action Lab.
Then, take some time to review the pre-recorded keynote and panel sessions focused on Latest Research to make sure you are ready to engage in the fast-paced, interactive sessions that follow. As you explore the pre-recorded content, we encourage you to develop big ideas for how we can further the science and research behind the solutions for people and planet. You will get to share and develop ideas during the Peer-to-Peer Brainstorming Sessions.
Later, during Collaborative Action Group Sessions, you will get to create action plans for these ideas so that you and other conference participants can begin to make them a reality. The action plans that will develop from these sessions are a crucial part of the goals behind NCSE Drawdown 2021, and we can’t wait to see what your group will bring to the table.
