Countdown is a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, turning ideas into action.

Every organization, company, city and nation and citizens everywhere are invited to collaborate with Countdown and take action on climate. It is a movement open to everyone โ€“ and everyone has a vital role to play.

DANCE is about connecting with peopleโ€™s emotions. Itโ€™s personal and at the same time, universal. DANCE ARTISTS, as a creative contributor, can not merely pursue their creative aspirations, they can also play a different and necessary role with long-term vision in contributing to the societal impact in terms of the overall health, development, and well-being of our society.

Itโ€™s true that 2020 was a year that challenged all of us in so very many ways, but it was also a year of reflection and transformation. While we know that 2021 will find us facing ever more different upheaval, we can also assure you that there will be great artistic to bring us solace, to inspire and enlighten us, and to offer us moments of escape and build your resilience.

We would like to create the boxes for you to think through TEDxBEYONDBollywood which host a virtual event to hear from leading dance artists about what a healthy, abundant, zero-emission future can look like, what role a dance artist can get involved/even rally others to take action and the powerful reasons why this critical moment is the time to act!
