TED, launched the global event named #JoinTheCountdown to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, turning ideas into action. Their 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.” Energy, transport, material, food, and nature are their key focus areas. They are inviting experts to come and collectively answer these five pressing questions:

The release further states that to get in line with the Paris Agreement, emissions must drop 7.6 percent per year from 2020 to 2030 for the 1.5°C goal and 2.7 percent per year for the 2°C goal.
