We can change climate change …introducing TEDxTinHau Countdown

TEDxTinHau is excited to be bringing Countdown, a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, to Hong Kong.

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.

To make progress on climate action we need to collaborate on a global scale, and every community has an important role to play.

Join us on Saturday, October 17th 2020 at TEDxTinHau Countdown to identify the bold solutions that can be activated when people break out of their silos and rise to the challenge. Discover and book for the day’s events.

Introducing our speakers

TEDxTinHau Countdown will feature incredible speakers sharing ideas that amplify and demonstrate climate action solutions, supported by community activities that bring some of these ideas to life in Hong Kong.

Please join us in welcoming Lance LauTanja WesselsOllie HaasPeggy ChanJonathan Cybulski and Keilem Ng – your TEDxTinHau Countdown speakers of 2020. We are so excited to have this inspiring team involved.

Focused on action and impact

Countdown is focused on looking at five key areas – energy, transport, materials, food and nature. These areas are chosen as areas where action will have the biggest impact.

Five key areas Countdown is focused on.

Together we can help meet 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.
