What we're about

This group is for anyone interested in discussing new ways of engaging with global climate change. All skills and backgrounds are welcome. You might feel confused about the best way to help, guilty that you aren’t doing more, or even wondering if it’s too late anyway. We will share approaches on the issues that will leave you with more optimism and areas to focus that make a difference.

TED Countdown discussion: Leadership

Online event

Countdown is a new global initiative from TED to accelerate solutions to the climate crisis. The Countdown talks from leading climate experts, activists, and change makers were live streamed back on October 10th, but the good news is that we can still watch and discuss each of the talks which are both inspiring and educational. The Countdown talks ( https://www.ted.com/series/countdown ) are arranged into five topics: Urgency, Leadership, Transformation, Breakthroughs, and Action. We will take on each topic in turn in the coming weeks. This time we will focus on Leadership. For this second of our virtual meeting series, on Sunday, December 13, we are asking participants to try and watch the full leadership session in advance of the meeting: https://www.ted.com/talks/hosted_by_al_gore_and_jaden_smith_countdown_session_2_leadership_full_session?language=en&referrer=playlist-countdown_session_2_leadership This full session includes all of the individual Leadership talks. During the meetup, we will watch a subset of the individual talks to inspire discussion and include plenty of time for discussion. Once you RSVP, we will provide the zoom link. The transcripts and key quotes from some of the talks are aggregated in a Basecamp project "TED Countdown". Also, some added content and discussion of these talks is available. Here's a link to join the TED Countdown Basecamp Project: https://3.basecamp.com/4309093/join/1JU2Wzyiv1U2 Join this Basecamp project here: TED Countdown Go to "Docs & Files" > folder "Leadership Module".
