It is a Beautiful Day in the Project Drawdown Neighborhood

Project Drawdown’s Neighborhood: Pittsburgh features 11 stories of how people are mobilizing to fuel a green future in a city with a deep history in coal and steel. In the spirit of Pittsburgh native Mister Rogers, the series showcases the diverse “neighborhood” of people working to help the world reach drawdown, the future point when greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere start to steadily decline. Climate solutions heroes who share their efforts to build a better community and a better world include Clara Kitongo, program coordinator at Tree Pittsburgh; Alexis Cromer, food operations director at 412 Food Rescue; and Veni Mittal, community service chair at the Green Building Alliance.

In addition to the featured videos, the Drawdown’s Neighborhood site offers discussion prompts to engage classrooms or communities in dialogue around each episode. And there are resource links to help individuals and others take action to address climate change in their own lives and neighborhoods.

Drawdown’s Neighborhood is hosted by Matt Scott, manager of storytelling and engagement at Project Drawdown. To view the videos, learn more, and stay up to date with future releases, please visit the link below.
