The Fourth Pig is pleased to be part of the program at ecoCaledon Drawdown Environmental Community Workshop, acting as a resource around sustainable building.

“The Workshop will:

  • Show you the Seven Sectors of Drawdown that provide solutions (i.e., Food, Energy etc.). Communities around the world including Caledon are working together to move the dial on stopping Climate change. The program uses educational materials developed by the Pachamama Alliance" (a California not for profit)

  • See what Sectors and Solutions and Actions can make a difference.

  • Consider being a part of a community or neighbourhood group working together to do an environmental project (i.e., Local Park Clean-up, Community Garden etc.)

  • Hear about two Caledon Enviro projects; Gratitude for Food and Zero Waste

Project Drawdown is the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming. We did not make or devise the plan—the plan exists and is being implemented worldwide. It has been difficult to envision this possibility because the focus is overwhelmingly on the impacts of climate change. We gathered a qualified and diverse group of researchers from around the world to identify, research, and model the 100 most substantive, existing solutions to address climate change. What was uncovered is a path forward that can roll back global greenhouse gas emissions within thirty years. The research revealed that humanity has the means and techniques at hand. Nothing new needs to be invented, yet many more solutions are coming due to purposeful human ingenuity. The solutions we modeled are in place and in action. Humanity’s task is to accelerate the knowledge and growth of what is possible as soon as possible.”
