TED Countdown is a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, turning ideas into action. The goal: to build a better future by cutting greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 in the race to a zero-carbon world – a world that is safer, cleaner and fairer for everyone.

TEDxCAHP is a free, two-session webinar happening on:

Tuesday, October 13, 2020, 1pm – 2:15pm EDT and

Thursday, October 15, 1pm – 2:15pm EDT

TEDxCAHP was created to start a dialogue about the importance of existing buildings in creating a sustainable future and addressing the climate crisis. Led by the Canadian Association of Heritage Professionals (CAHP), this two-session event is supported by the NSERC CREATE Heritage Engineering program, ICOMOS Canada, the Association for Preservation Technology (APT) and others.

The two sessions on October 13 and 15 will include material from the TED Countdown Global Launch, and will present four unique TEDx talks:

Building Reuse = Climate Action , presented by Mark Thompson Brandt

Conservation of energy and existing heritage values, presented by Larissa Ide

Existing buildings make good business, presented by Kevin Bates

Save buildings, fight climate change, presented by Jennifer O’Connor.
