Climate Heroes in Your Neighborhood with Matt Scott

There are climate heroes among us everywhere, but many go unnoticed in the thrum of everyday life. Matt Scott, director of storytelling and engagement at the global nonprofit climate solutions resource Project Drawdown, has been shining a light on the work of such people in cities across the country in his documentary short series “Drawdown’s Neighborhood.” In Atlanta, Pittsburgh, New Orleans and more, Scott lifts up underrepresented voices of those engaging in climate issues directly in their communities. And that diversity of voices—of women, Black people, Indigenous people, and people of color—is itself the point. “By passing the mic to underrepresented people working on the frontlines of climate change, we hope to share as many of these stories as possible while reshaping who society sees as climate heroes,” says Scott.

The San Francisco Bay Area is the latest region in "Drawdown’s Neighborhood," with full episodes premiering in August 2024. Join us for this unique Climate One event, as Matt Scott hosts a live conversation with local climate heroes and showcases the diversity of people taking action all across the country to meaningfully address climate change.
