A global initiative to accelerate solutions to the climate crisis.
Countdown is a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis. To make progress on climate action we need to collaborate on a global and local scale. I helped bring Countdown to the local community by co-hosting our TEDx Countdown event. It's a thrill when one single night ticks all the boxes: Climate Action? and we rise! Public Speaking? check, check. Circle That? represent! Circular Pioneers? triple check.
Why did I ask Agnes to be a moderator for the local TEDx Utrecht Countdown?
"I saw a wonderful, kind, and passionate young woman with a big heart for sustainability heart. But she exceeded my expectations: I saw a real pro on stage. As a public speaking coach, I worked shortly with her and was impressed by her hosting and presentation skills. She makes an impact on stage, by being enthusiastic, sharp in her message, and delivers a great overall performance. She's a very fast learner and ambitious in all she does. It was a privilege to have worked with Agnes."
