Every Job A Climate Job: Jamie Alexander, Project Drawdown Virtual event, Virtual event
Of the 3 billion employees worldwide today, a vanishingly small percentage have the words “sustainability” or “climate” in their job title, and they are far from the only people that need to be working on addressing climate change NOW.
To help the rest of us figure out how to contribute, Drawdown Labs just published Climate Solutions at Work–a how-to guide for employees looking to make every job a climate job. The guide mentions specific job functions (e.g., marketing, human resources, government affairs, etc.) that have enormous untapped potential to drive climate action. It also helps employees assess the strength of their company’s steps to address the climate crisis, and how they can utilize their power to push their company.
Jamie Alexander is the Founding Director of Drawdown Labs, Project Drawdown’s testing ground for equitable climate action in the private sector, and formerly led west coast corporate engagement for Ceres. In this talk open to the public, Jamie will be speaking to students from Terra.do, the global platform for climate work, learning, and community.
