About the Event
Making Sense of Climate change on Crete
Taking Action TEDx European Sustainability Academy was an online event that took place on 17th October as part of the TED Countdown global launch to share ideas and showcases solutions, technologies and actions for addressing the global climate change emergency.
Due to the current pandemic restrictions, diverse speakers gave live talks via webinar.
Attendees were from diverse locations with many from island states, suffering similar climate change crises as Crete.
Discussions were built in to the agenda for knowledge sharing and collaborative networking. The event closed with a CALL TO ACTION!
The content of these talks is very practical and grounded in suggestions for local action. There is no more time for abstract theories.
The programme focussed on answering 3 core questions.
– What climate change impacts have you noticed on Crete? (or your own island)
– How do you envisage 10 years from now (2030) if no action for change is taken urgently?
– What actions for change would you like to see happening to reduce GHGs and prevent global warming from exceeding 1.5 degrees?
Themes of taking action will apply to one or all of 5 areas of: energy, transport, materials, food and nature.
