TEDxCharleston features “Countdown”- A Global Effort to Take on Climate Change on October 18

October 10, 2020 – Charleston, SC – TEDxCharleston invites you to a very special event focused on one of our most pressing issues: Climate Change. On October 18 at 6PM, we’ll feature a curated selection of inspiring speakers, who are participating in TED’s Countdown. Countdown is a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, turning ideas into action.

Norm Levine, Professor of Geology & Environmental Geosciences at The College of Charleston will serve as host for an informative and inspiring series of talks on an issue that affects all of us.

The goal: To build a better future by cutting greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 in the race to a zero-carbon world – a world that is safer, cleaner and fairer for everyone.

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.

We are 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.
