Mitchell is continuing with the theme of solutions to the profoundest issue of them all, Climate Change.
This week, Mitchell interviews Dr. Katharine Wilkinson, Vice President of Communication & Engagement at Project Drawdown, where she is advancing the organization’s message, reach, and Climate Change Just Ahead sign with bad day on backgroundinfluence around the world. She was lead writer for the New York Times bestseller Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming—the #1 environmental book of 2017.
Katharine’s interdisciplinary background cuts across research, strategy, advocacy, and thought leadership. Previously, she was Director of Strategy at the purpose consultancy BrightHouse. She has taught at the University of Oxford and Agnes Scott College and worked for The Boston Consulting Group and Natural Resources Defense Council. Her first book, Between God & Green: How Evangelicals Are Cultivating a Middle Ground on Climate Change, was called “a vitally important, even subversive, story” by The Boston Globe.global-warming-climate-change-tree_1big_stock2
As an international public speaker, Katharine’s perspective has been featured by Aspen Ideas, Skoll World Forum, Talks Google, and The Weather Channel. Katharine holds a doctorate in Geography & Environment from Oxford, where she was a Rhodes Scholar, and a B.A. in Religion from Sewanee—The University of the South. She is happiest on a mountain or a horse or perhaps both!
A Better World is bearing down on the story behind the damage humans have done over hundreds of years to our precious eco-system, the extent of it, and what we have as solutions to reverse Global Warming, which should really be called Global Heating or as Robin Williams called it "Global Grilling". A Better World is doing all it can to restore equilibrium to our eco-system.
