Join us for another free virtual event! TED ⁠Countdown is a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, turning ideas into action. 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.⁠

The ongoing health and economic crises are reminding us of an important fact: We’re all part of the same fragile system, dependent on nature and one another.

As we look to the future, we must build forward and emerge more sustainable and resilient than before.

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.

TEDxCU's Countdown event will feature talks shared at TED Countdown, in addition to our own panel and discussion focused on local solutions.

While registration is free, we do ask that you consider making a tax-deductible donation to TEDxCU. We are a student-centered team that relies on ticket sales and sponsorships to make our events a reality. Please consider donating: click here.

TEDxCU is a project of the College of Media, Communication and Information and the Department of Communication at the University of Colorado Boulder.
