WE NEED TO REMOVE 15 BILLION TONS OF CARBON – PER YEAR.
🌎 By 2050 we need to reduce yearly emissions by 7% and remove 12-15 billion tons of carbon (according to The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change)
🌎 Today, we have removed ~1 million tons of carbon
🌎 Thousands of climate activists and scientists are inventing new carbon removal methods but lack the proper funding
These are called “carbon drawdown” or “carbon dioxide removal” projects. Paired with sequestration (carbon storage) they are imperative to turn climate change around.
Donate to fund critical carbon removal research through art
Open Source: Speeding up research
All DRAWDAO funded projects are 100% open source. Research and progress updates will be shared with academic communities and our donors. Donations made are tax deductible charitable contributions and every donor will receive project-specific artwork.DONATE TODAY
WE’RE ON A MISSION TO FUND THE CREATION OF NEW CARBON REMOVAL PROJECTS

🌎 Carbon Gardener is a citizen science project led by climate scientist Dr. Garrett Boudinot in tandem with high schools across the Northeast.
🌎 They will evaluate if adding rock dust to local school gardens removes carbon, and will share their findings.
🌎 Rock dust and the inorganic carbon cycle is a natural process that already removes 1 billion tons of carbon from the atmosphere every year
NON-PROFIT DRIVEN BY VOLUNTEER ARTISTS
Donors receive original artwork inspired by Carbon Gardener
SILVANA P. DUNCAN
Born in Colombia, her artwork she aims to portray the beauty of life as well as to reflect on important issues like climate change, mental health and social equity.
Kenny’s code-based art captures the beauty, turbulence, and horror of our times. His custom written algorithms generate colorful & abstract expressions.
Ed is a Malta-born illustrator & designer. His work is meant to respond to worldly injustices with vibrant visuals that aim to connect with, support or inspire viewers.
Julija’s work approaches social issues and subjects that she cares about from an alternative perspective. Her work is minimal with vintage accents and contemporary aesthetics.
Tri is an Indonesian multi-disciplinary designer and his work is inspired by cultural, environmental, and climate action. His art incorporates vibrant colors and unique ideas.

WHY CARBON REMOVAL?
The answer is that we need to be doing both – reducing our emissions and dependency on fossil fuels, and removing carbon from the atmosphere. Why?
Every projection on how we get to “Net Zero” illustrates the need for carbon removal at massive scale. Carbon removal also offers several co-benefits to our planet and economy:
🌎 Cleans up our atmosphere and oceans
🌎 Provide clean jobs and economic support
🌎 Improves living conditions of people around the world
🌎 Unlocks scientific progress in energy production, food security, biology and other vital fields of research
CARBON REMOVAL CATEGORIES
There are thousands of potential pathways to remove carbon, generally falling into the following categories:
🌎 Direct Air Capture
🌎 Blue Carbon
🌎 Forests, Soils, and Wetlands
🌎 Biomass Carbon Removal and Storage
🌎 Carbon Storage
🌎 Emerging Solutions
CARBON REMOVAL BLUEPRINTS
The projects and communities behind carbon removal are a closely connected ecosystem.
In the near future, we envision a world where DrawDAO members, donors and partners will be able to explore and connect in order to share project detail and breakthroughs.
We also see a future where anyone who wants to experiment with carbon removal can have an opportunity to do so by getting access to procedural how-to’s on the various methods of carbon removal & storage.
