Rise Up & Drawdown Michigan

September 25 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Let’s Rise Up & Drawdown Carbon in Michigan – a conference on climate change solutions!

On September 25, 2019 the Michigan Community will come together in Grand Rapids to offer local solutions and opportunities for engagement on the important subject of climate change. The stakes have never been higher and will require action at every scale and across every sector.

We will learn from our state and local government leaders followed by a keynote presentation from Paul Hawken, who is shifting the larger global conversation on climate change from “doom and gloom” to a sense of opportunity, possibility, and hope for the future.

Engage in local solutions and community efforts. The solutions to climate change exist and are economically viable. We are in this together and together we will prevail creating a socially just world focused on human health, security and prosperity.
