    Virtual Event: 10am - 12pm Central Time

    Countdown is a global initiative to champion and accelerates solutions to the climate crisis, turning ideas into 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 everyone. Every organization, company, city and nation, and citizens everywhere are invited to collaborate with Countdown and take action on climate. It is a movement open to everyone – and everyone has a vital role to play.

    The plan is for Countdown to answer five fundamental, interconnected questions that help inform a blueprint for a cleaner future. We are bringing together scientists, activists, entrepreneurs, urban planners, farmers, CEOs, investors, artists, government officials, and others to find the most effective, evidence-based ideas out there. Our goal is to identify the bold solutions that can be activated when people break out of their silos and rise to the challenge.
