Our 12th annual event is in the making. It’s time. Let’s turn the tide on climate!

2020 is the year for COUNTDOWN – a bold new initiative from TED to transform our cities and create a sustainable world for future generations. Countdown is about involving everyone to take action in response to the global climate crisis: politicians, CEOs, activists, celebrities, and citizens both young and old. Countdown is TED’s most global activation yet! TEDxBucharest is joining as part of TED and TEDx extended family.

2 days of talks, collaboration and commitments that we can track together, learn from and build on. The goal isn’t chit-chat. The goal is action. From everyone.

When: October 9th-10th

Where: To be announced asap

A change of the form or nature of a thing or person into a completely different one. This is a metamorphosis.
When we chose it as the theme for our 11th event, we had you in mind: our multi-generational community of participative seekers, thinkers, and doers. It’s been more than a decade since we’ve been sharing ideas worth spreading. From 1 to 11, we have changed. Now it’s time for a collective metamorphosis heralding the start of a new decade together.

We took stock of how far we have come while shining a spotlight on new luminaries, able to guide us further on the road to evolution. So there you go, you’ll meet 24 speakers and performers bringing on stage a multitude of topics: contemporary dance, AI and VR, executive coaching, architecture, wellness and leadership, hacking, sustainability, creativity and many more.

Until we meet, we’re excited to share with you the new speakers and performers have joined our line-up!
