TED (as in TED talks – ideas worth spreading) in conjunction with alliance partners was planning to run a global event on 10th October 2020 to turn the tide on the Climate Crisis. With the pandemic this won’t be happening but there will be online events and we at Climate Solutions Alliance plan to part of assembling the ‘Climate Solutionists’ to help make it happen.
HERE’S THEIR PLAN
Countdown is a worldwide movement to find ways to shift, more rapidly, to a world with net zero greenhouse emissions and tackle the climate crisis.
We need to engage EVERYONE. Politicians. CEOs. Investors. Media influencers. Activists. Citizens all over the world, young and old. We all have a role to play. Including you.
How rapidly can we move to 100% clean energy?
The plunging cost of renewable energy could be a thrilling game-changer for widespread adoption.
- Built environment
How can we re-engineer the stuff that surrounds us?
We need regenerative economics and a materials revolution.
How do we transform the ways we move?
It’s time to rethink our cars, trucks, ships and planes for the 21st century.
How can we spark a worldwide shift to healthier food systems?
A delicious, nutritious future can be good for farmers — and the planet.
- Nature (Regreening)
How extensively can we re-green the earth?
With conscious intervention, our forests, soil and oceans could help return us to a stable carbon cycle — saving us and countless other species.
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.
