On October 10, 2020, TED will host a virtual event to 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. Countdown is a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, turning ideas into action. Countdown seeks to answer five fundamental, interconnected questions that help inform a blueprint for a cleaner 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. Our goal is to identify the bold solutions that can be activated when people break out of their silos and rise to the challenge.
