What is #24HoursOfReality?

Every year, former US Vice President Al Gore and The Climate Reality Project (our parent organization) set a global initiative to raise awareness about the climate crisis and the existing solutions. This year, Climate Reality and TED Countdown are partnering to present 24 Hours of Reality: Countdown to the Future.

It kicks off at 11am ET on October 10 with TED Countdown’s five-hour program of livestreamed TED talks and discussion. Then at 4pm ET, Climate Reality Leaders around the world will continue the conversation with 24 full hours of digital presentations on the future we want and how we get there.

24 Hours of Reality culminates in a special presentation from Vice President Gore and other activists. This special finale begins at 3pm ET on October 11 and will be streamed live on and The Climate Reality Project’s Facebook page.

See the 24 Hours of Reality website for more details and the latest updates.

Can I give a presentation?

Yes! Please do! If you are a Climate Reality Leader, this is your chance to book a presentation! You can choose whether to make it private (so your family, friends, or book club folks can check out that climate stuff you keep talking about) or public (why not?).
