Climate Change and the Great Lakes
We're at an inflection point. COVID-19, the climate crisis, and a global reckoning on racial justice have forced us to rethink normal and created a new world of possibilities. Now it’s time to ask ourselves one simple question. What is the future we want? On October 10–11, former Vice President Al Gore and The Climate Reality Project will do just that with 24 Hours of Reality: Countdown to the Future , a global conversation on the future we want and how we get there, held in partnership with TED Countdown. For 24 straight hours, Vice President Gore and Climate Reality Leader activists across the planet will lead digital presentations and discussions exploring the historic conjunction of climate change, COVID-19, and structural racism that not only threatens our lives and deepest values, but opens the door to truly transformative change.

Local climate activist Kris Olsson will lead the presentation, which will include details about the Great Lakes impacts, local solutions, and WHAT YOU CAN DO to HELP!!!!!
Free and open to audiences everywhere, Countdown to the Future invites people of all ages and walks of life to join a planet-wide dialogue on the existential threats and historic opportunities that define our moment, looking ahead to a just and sustainable future and learning what we can all do to make it a reality.
Beginning at 4 PM ET on October 10, Climate Reality Leaders across the Earth will host 24 hours of virtual presentations and discussions exploring how the climate crisis, a global pandemic, and racial injustice together shape our moment and presenting a path forward to the just and sustainable future we want. Before the event, people everywhere can request a presentation for their office, school, place of worship, or community, making this a truly global conversation. All presentations and discussions are free and take place online. The 24 hours of Countdown to the Future culminates in a special presentation from Vice President Gore and activists on the frontlines of the climate and justice crises worldwide. This special finale presentation begins at 3 PM ET on October 11 and will be streamed live on and The Climate Reality Project’s Facebook page.
