YOUR CLIMATE ACTION JOURNEY

Inspired by the ideas heard on the TEDxLondon Countdown stage, we’re offering four special TEDxLondon Countdown workshops in 2024. This is your opportunity to deep dive into different climate ideas and solutions.

You’ll connect with like-minded people from the TEDxLondon community who are thinking about climate change and looking to learn more about what they can do about it. We promise you’ll come away feeling hopeful and energised with new knowledge and ideas about what action you can take next.

Start your climate action journey with TEDxLondon.

THE WORKSHOPS

We’re delighted to be partnering with The Conduit to offer these workshops in-person and for free throughout 2024.

PROTECTING OUR FREEDOM TO CAMPAIGN WITH FRIENDS OF THE EARTH
Weds 7 February 2024, 9.30-11.30am

In recent years our freedom to campaign and right to protest has been threatened through new legislation, new policing powers, new offences, lower thresholds and higher penalties. Peaceful and powerful activities which have delivered wins like slow walking, gathering in person, sitting down or linking arms can now be deemed unlawful and or lead to arrest. Our right to protest peacefully is a fundamental human right and a crucial tool to campaign and express our views for any issue ranging from Climate Crisis, Peace or Brexit. This session will explore what is going on, what it means and what we can do about it.

Miriam is Co-Executive Director at the environmental campaigning organisation Friends of the Earth in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Watch Miriam’s talk: Why we must protect our right to protest.

HOW TO ACTIVATE YOUR CLIMATE SUPERPOWERS AND KEEP YOUR CLIMATE ZEN
Thurs 18 April 2024, 6-9pm

Public concern about climate change is on the rise. “Code red for humanity”, “highway to climate hell” – stark headlines which go hand in hand with rising anxiety and feelings of powerlessness, especially among young people. But what if this way of thinking and talking about climate change won’t help us move forward?

In this interactive, ‘lean forward’ session, you’ll learn why beliefs and concerns about climate change are not predictable drivers of action and instead explore what an alternative way of talking about climate change looks like. You’ll go deeper on how you can use these key insights to activate your climate superpowers.

Kris is a neuroscientist and director of the Climate Action Unit at University College London. Watch Kris’s talk: Why we need to change how we talk about climate change.
