TED Talks open our minds, spark new ways of thinking and can lead to some very interesting conversations. Over the last few years, each week on a Tuesday a member from the team has picked a TED Talk and published it. Our TED Talk Tuesdays allow the CN&CO team to play their part on spreading ideas and helping to make the world a better place. Check out a few of the other TED Talk Tuesday picks HERE. Our TED Circles get togethers build on this love for TED, conversations and people. Here’s a wrap-up of our latest TED Circle Hosted by CN&CO.

TED Circles hosted by CN&CO is back in action. Having taken a break in September, we look forward to the conversations at our next get together.

The theme for October is “Everyone’s Environment”, a topic with endless discussion points. Our environment has been change significantly in 2020 and we have become far more aware of our immediate surrounds, as well as how interconnected the world truly is.

The event will be slightly different to our previous ones as we have a guest host in the line-up. More on this in the coming weeks as we share how collaboration can drive sustainable change.

So, please join us on the 15th of October at 4pm Reserve your spot here

October is also the month of TED Count Down and on the 10th of October a virtual event will be held, you can view all the details here.

Sustainability is something that our Joshua Nuttall is passionate about. He strongly believes “that by shifting the way that we think we can build a better future. One that is more conscious, tolerant, and mindful of the decisions that we make. We can learn a lot from the way nature’s systems operate and how they use the resources at their disposal.”

The Countdown has brought together leading minds, young and old, in an attempt to develop a net zero greenhouse emission world by 2050. An achievable target, but one that requires us to work together to achieve it.

On the 23rd of September a massive digital clock was unveiled in Manhattan’s Union Square. The clock draws attention to the irreversible climate emergency we are facing.

A new digital clock unveiled in Manhattan’s Union Square over the weekend promises to tell you exactly how long the world has left to act before an irreversible climate emergency alters human existence. The Climate Clock unveiled by artists Gan Golan and Andrew Boyd warned at 1:30 p.m. Monday that there were 7 years, 101 days, 17 hours, 29 minutes and 22 seconds until Earth’s carbon budget is depleted, based on current emission rates. A total depletion would thrust the world into further turmoil and suffering through more flooding, more wildfires, worsening famine and extensive human displacement, according to the artists. The timer counts down how long it will take for the world to burn through its carbon budget if swift action isn’t taken to keep warming under 1.5 degrees Celsius. If Earth’s temperatures increase by 1.5 degrees Celsius, the planet will fall victim to extreme heat waves, fires, droughts and limited water availability, a 2019 NASA report on global climate change warns. The clock’s second figure, displayed in green, is labeled a “lifeline.” It tracks the percentage of available energy being supplied from renewable sources. Read more by clicking the link in our bio.
