Countdown is TED’s first issue-specific initiative. It was launched in 2019 in order to champion and accelerate the bold ideas and underinvested solutions that can bring the world closer to achieving a zero-carbon world – one that is cleaner, healthier and fairer for all.
TEDx Countdown is a grassroots initiative that supports locally-curated climate events. Host communities have the opportunity to share Countdown content and showcase their own innovative climate solutions with the world through the TED stage. You can access their library of free videos here.
