Learn the latest and local “ideas worth spreading” related to climate solutions.
TEDx Lacamas Lake Countdown will feature 18 Pacific Northwest speakers and performers who will delve into how they mitigate climate impacts — and how others can, too. The event is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Magenta Theater, 1108 Main St., in downtown Vancouver. Admission costs $95 or $30 for students.
Topics span from how wastewater utilities can transform sewage into clean energy or how living sustainably can be done with simple lifestyle tweaks. Experts will talk about carbon imbalances in dry forestland, as well as how the construction sector can decarbonize by reducing concrete use.

TEDx events are different than TED conferences, which similarly provides a platform for speakers to share ideas but on a national scale. Instead, the “x” denotes that the event is self-organized and managed though still recognized by the nonprofit organization.
TED’s “Countdown” initiative sets the stage for people and organizations leading efforts to address climate impacts. These particular events fall in line with the organization’s goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 and completely cut them by 2050, according to TED.
