In this podcast, Beyond Zero radio talks to Katharine Wilkinson, D.Phil., Senior Writer at Project Drawdown, working to bring Drawdown to life and to the world and translating research into message. She brings with her an interdisciplinary background that cuts across sustainability, strategy, and thought leadership. Previously, Katharine was Director of Strategy at the purpose consultancy BrightHouse. She also has taught at the University of Oxford and worked for the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Boston Consulting Group. Based on her doctoral research at Oxford, Katharine published Between God & Green: How Evangelicals Are Cultivating a Middle Ground on Climate Change (OUP 2012), called “a vitally important, even subversive, story” by The Boston Globe. She holds a D.Phil. in Geography & Environment from Oxford, where she was a Rhodes Scholar, and a B.A. in Religion from Sewanee: The University of the South, where she was a Udall Scholar and valedictorian.
“Drawdown maps, measures, models, and describes the 100 most substantive solutions to global warming. For each solution, we describe its history, the carbon impact it provides, the relative cost and savings, the path to adoption, and how it works. The goal of the research that informs Drawdown is to determine if we can reverse the buildup of atmospheric carbon within thirty years. All solutions modeled are already in place, well understood, analyzed based on peer-reviewed science, and are expanding around the world.”
