NCSE Drawdown 2021 Conference

Research to Action: Science and Solutions for a Planet Under Pressure

The NCSE Drawdown 2021 Conference will feature everything our community values from past NCSE Annual Conferences with the addition of an exciting new collaboration with Project Drawdown. Given the staggering pace of change in the world today, combining the NCSE 2021 Annual Conference and the 2nd Global Drawdown—Research to Action Conference will exponentially amplify opportunities for collaboration and progress. 

The overarching theme of our joint conference will be Research to Action: Science and Solutions for a Planet Under Pressure. NCSE will lead programming on January 5–7, focusing on heat and water during this time of change across our global ecosystems. On the afternoon of January 7, NCSE and Project Drawdown will host joint programming. Project Drawdown will lead the events on January 8–9 to dive even further into the research and science that informs the Drawdown solutions framework.
