With the ambitious goal of becoming the first carbon-neutral continent by 2050, the European Union has committed to creating a greener world for future generations. In this bold talk, Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, details the challenges and opportunities that come with transitioning an entire continent to clean energy — and shows why fixing climate change calls for everyone to take action.
This talk was part of the Countdown Global Launch on 10.10.2020. Countdown is TED’s global initiative to accelerate solutions to the climate crisis. The goal: to build a better future by cutting greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030, in the race to a zero-carbon world.
“We start this new decade knowing that it is the most consequential period in history,” says Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge. Inspired by President John F. Kennedy’s “Moonshot,” he calls on everyone to rise to our greatest challenge ever: the “Earthshot.” A set of ambitious objectives for the planet, the Earthshot goals seek to protect and restore nature, clean the air, revive oceans, build a waste-free world and fix the climate — all in the next decade. To do it, we’ll need people in all corners of the globe working together with urgency, creativity and the belief that it is possible to repair the Earth.
