TEDx = IDEAS WORTH SHARING
Countdown is a bold, global movement to find ways to rapidly shift to a world with net zero greenhouse emissions and tackle the climate crisis. Communities, schools, universities, businesses, nonprofits, and city representative offices are invited to participate. Understanding that now is the time to take back power on climate, TED works with incredible networks to ignite ideas, showcase solutions, and drive action locally.
Since the Countdown global launch, local events have aimed to amplify and demonstrate climate solutions. and are held in various formats: live or virtual gatherings centered on original local speakers or TED Countdown talks, showcases of solution technologies, and even volunteer activities contributing to positive change. Over 1,000 events in 99 countries took place to feature innovative solutions against the climate challenge we all face.
TED is a nonpartisan nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 110 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
