What is this?
Action Circles are self-organizing circles of up to 10 people aimed at becoming the engine of our community’s commitment to tackling climate change. (1) They undertake and implement a specific action and goal, (2) help promote our community-building programs, and (3) participate as co-creators in shaping the 2021 TEDxDanubia Countdown event through their meaningful feedback.
Who is it for?
What participants have in common is that they agree with our basic principles: whether we do something for sustainable development, take action to stop climate change, is longer an option, but should be one of our most important activities. The members of Action Circle are not only aware that climate change is the responsibility of all of us and that we all need to be involved, they are also willing to take action. Instead of fear mongering, they look for solutions. They are able to work independently and share challenges, questions, and achievements!
Why is it good to be part of Action Circles?
- Action Circles’ initiatives get publicity!
- They become co-creators of the 2021 TEDxDanubia Countdown climate event.
- The best will have the opportunity to present their work on stage, and of course will get all the necessary help in the preparation!
- Leaders of Action Circles can participate in the TEDxDanubia Countdown 2021 event for free, and additional members of the circles will have an advantage when applying and receive discounted tickets.
What do Action Circles do?
- Looking through reduce / reuse / recycle glasses, they rethink what they could do about climate change in their own environment / life situation and take concrete steps to achieve it, be it local action or raising global awareness. They share the steps, results and experiences with each other.
- They take part in the compilation of a so-called the “Code of Conduct” with their opinions and suggestions, which will be completed by the 2021 TEDxDanubia Countdown event!
- They will help plan the 2021 conference and the best circles will get to introduce themselves on stage.
What is the result?
The efforts of TED Countdown and other climate protection organizations will be multiplied, moreover, the issues and solutions of the climate challenge can be interpreted according to local specificities.
Specific programs are being implemented or launched that have a positive impact on climate change.
Through the program, a reduce / reuse / recycle toolkit will be developed, which will help with implementation socially.
Circle leaders will attend the spring event, and some of their members will have the chance to introduce themselves on stage and report on what has happened in the Action Circles.
