Climate change is the need of the hour and major organisations like TED and Future Stewards plan to address it on a global level. They are hosting a global countdown event that aims to encourage millions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by half, by the time we reach 2030. It is a world-wide initiative that involves collaboration with over 50 public figures from diverse sectors. The campaign involves major celebrities and stakeholders and our beloved content creator Prajakta Koli a.k.a MostlySane is a part of it too! Here’s everything you need to know about the Countdown, a world-wide initiative to battle climate crisis and Prajakta’s experience.

We can inspire others through action because there is no hope without action. I am delighted to partner with Countdown to inspire every company and country and engage citizens in actions that decouple carbon from our economy and way of life in this decade. We need to fight to ensure this planet survives and flourishes for future generations, which requires intergenerational collaboration. The Countdown is about coming together across ages and sectors to help the planet to heal and ensure we preserve the earth better than we have been doing so far.
We are so happy to see her represent herself and the country on such a massive global stage! We can’t wait to watch the Countdown event that will be streamed live on TED’s YouTube channel. It is through thought-provoking discussions like these, that we will be able to make a change we desire. Are you excited to watch MostlySane at the Countdown? Tell us in comments below!
