Countdown by TEDxSkift

Watch the event here

In collaboration with the Climate House at the Natural History Museum in Oslo, we are proud to present a digital TEDx Countdown event where we present climate solutions developed by climate leaders in our network.

This event is part of the initiative TED Countdown, a global platform for sharing and accelerating solutions to the climate crisis. As an official network partner of TED Countdown, Skift wants to involve the Norwegian business community in this effort. We look forward to soak up ideas and solutions from the global stage, and to present solutions from Norway and Scandinavia to the world.
