3:07pm on Zoom
TEDxNorthCentral College is proud to host Countdown, a global TED initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, turning ideas into action. 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 back better and emerge more sustainable and resilient than before.
Join TEDxNorthCentralCollege on October 16th. live via Zoom, for a curated event featuring global talks from TED’s Countdown event, along with North Central alumni and campus leaders sharing their expertise and ideas for action.
What is TEDx?
TEDx events are independently-organized, licensed TED-like events that foster learning, innovation and wonder, and bring together local communities to spark conversation around ideas worth spreading.
As a comprehensive liberal arts college, North Central values a broad-based, interdisciplinary education that provides an ideal environment for the exchange of ideas. When the power of interdisciplinary learning is combined with a passion for the common good, the results are innovative solutions for lasting social impact. This is what you can expect from TEDxNorthCentralCollege.
