TED Countdown

Countdown is a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, turning ideas into action.

The ongoing health and economic crises are reminding us of an important fact: we are all part of the same fragile system, dependent on nature and one another. We must build back better and emerge more sustainable and resilient than before.

On October 10, 2020, we will hear from leading thinkers and doers about what a healthy, abundant, zero-emission future can look like; stirring examples of real progress underway; and powerful reasons why this post-crisis moment is the time to act. This global gathering will serve as inspiration and a call to action to the world’s leaders — and to people everywhere (including NI) — to step up and participate in building a better future.

TED is bringing together scientists, activists, entrepreneurs, urban planners, farmers, CEOs, investors, artists, government officials, and others to find the most effective, evidence-based ideas out there. The goal is to identify the bold solutions that can be activated when people break out of their silos and rise to the challenge.

We can change climate change – #JoinTheCountdown to a safer, cleaner, fairer future. Countdown invites collaboration from every organization, company, city and nation and from citizens everywhere. It is a movement open to everyone – and everyone has a vital role to play.
