Here are stories of everyday people who transformed their intentions into actions, and activated change where they live, work, gather, and share.
“It is globally agreed that botanical gardens are incredibly important to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals,” Joyce says. “We know that our reliance on single use plastics and fossil fuels needs to decline. These things end up in the wrong places – in waterways, affecting fish and birds and mammals. Ecosystem damage also damages plants. Humans can’t live without plants. That’s why it was really important to us to get involved this year.”
Drawdown Ecochallenge winners
In Spring 2018, 512 students and staff from Asheville High School in North Carolina won the Drawdown Ecochallenge with the goal to have every Environmental Science student on campus be able to identify, communicate and practice concrete actions that reverse global warming.
Individual action can create significant impact.
Since 2006, Betty Shelley and her husband Jon have produced just one 35-gallon garbage can of trash a year.
