What is TED Countdown?

Power
How rapidly can we move to 100% clean energy?
Built environment
How can we re-engineer the stuff that surrounds us?
Transport
How do we transform the ways we move?
Food
How can we spark a worldwide shift to healthier food systems?
Nature
How extensively can we re-green the earth?

We have a chance to avoid climate catastrophe if we can work together, from a solid scientific mindset, to answer these five giant questions:

Power
How rapidly can we move to 100% clean energy?

Built environment
How can we re-engineer the stuff that surrounds us?

Transport
How do we transform the ways we move?

Food
How can we spark a worldwide shift to healthier food systems?

Nature
How extensively can we re-green the earth?

Politicians. CEOs. Investors. Media influencers. Activists. Citizens all over the world, young and old. We all have a role to play. Including you.
Countdown’s goal is to identify compelling responses to all five questions. And to activate the solutions by connecting citizens directly with our business and political leaders.
Some of us might feel powerless to do much. 

But what if:

You could connect with coworkers and start helping transform your company’s business practices?
You could join up with hundreds of people in your city and help start an exciting local movement for change?
You could help spread a powerful global media campaign that pushed decision-makers to take action on these issues?
You could make small changes in your own life which will make a big difference as millions of people step up to the challenge?
Together, we can transform what our leaders believe is possible, by scaling up our collective action to match the challenge.

Early in 2020 the Countdown team will begin sharing tools that will help each of us connect with coworkers, neighbors and classmates to take concrete action, with a concrete deadline: a massive event in October that everyone in the world is invited to!
