The TEDxGreenStreet discussion series is set to take place this week, in collaboration with Countdown—a global initiative that works to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, turning ideas into the action.
The goal is 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 future generations.
Deborah Kattler Kupetz, the organizer and senior producer for the event, has an extensive career in professional event planning, and has attended TED discussions since 2002. While organizing a virtual event can be challenging, Kupetz also understands the benefits in the virtual nature of this TED discussion—including the fact that its easy accessibility will provide more opportunity for the series to be viewed by as many people as possible.
“The entire goal of this event is to get people thinking and talking about climate change, and the elements of it that we’re still working to understand on a global scale—especially ahead of the election,” said Kupetz.
Here’s what visitors can expect from this green-focused TED event:
3.) Professionals from the fields of science, politics, economics and sustainability will all be in attendance—and many will actually act as speakers, as well.
2.) Live speakers and TED Talks video will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in small, virtual groups.
1.) This one-of-a-kind TEDx event will inspire you to think differently about climate change, sustainability, and the Countdown global initiative.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. This particular event is called TEDxGreenStreet, where x = independently organized TED event.
