“Countdown is a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, by turning ideas into action. The 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.”
The main Global Countdown event was livestreamed on Oct 30, 2021 at 12 pm ET (9.30 pm IST) at this link. Biome Environmental Trust registered to host our own TEDx event, called TEDxBiomeEnvironmentalTrust2021 on Dec 4, 2021. The theme of this event was 'A City and its Used Water'. Several speakers from different walks of life - residents, entrepreneurs, government agencies, experts - spoke about different aspects of wastewater. The talks covered the treatment and reuse of wastewater from the home level to the city level, its effects on human health, the role of women and the effects of our daily practices on wastewater quality. Some Countdown talks by international speakers were also included in the event.
