Event description
Countdown is a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, turning ideas into action.

About this Event

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.

Countdown seeks 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.

Date - 1st November

Time - 1.30pm - 5.30pm

Stay tuned for the schedule!

About TEDx DuxtonHill

TEDxDuxtonHill is an independently organised TEDx event, licensed by TED. It is completely volunteer-run and financially supported by generous partners. This chapter of TEDx in Singapore is named after the Duxton Hill area, which sits in the Downtown Core of Singapore, on the former 13-hectares nutmeg plantation with 1,800 trees of Dr J. William Montgomerie (1797–1856), who first arrived in Singapore in 1819 together with the founder of Singapore, Sir Stamford Raffles. Apart from being the first official surgeon in Singapore, his impact on Singapore’s early community went beyond medicine, extending to the administration of the town, new scientific discoveries as well as social activities.

In addition to contributing to TED’s vision for ‘ideas worth spreading’, we also hope to promote the values of progressiveness and build a community of change advocates who are courageous like Dr William Montgomerie and be open to stepping up to be the change they want to see.
