Why I don’t care about ‘Climate Change’ | David Saddington | TEDxTeen

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. You don’t care about climate change right? Because it’s a bunch words of things that don’t affect your daily life. Think again. In this provocative talk, Saddington gives us a new lens on climate change. It’s a game changer.

Influencing UK government policy, establishing his own social enterprise and fronting a media campaign that reached over 3 million people are just a few of David’s achievements as a climate change activist since being impacted by a stark reminder of climate change as a teenager.

From a meeting with then Prime Minister Tony Blair at 10 Downing Street, he discussed the implementation of climate change on the national curriculum. Climate change is now an essential part of youth education and he has pushed to expand these education reforms worldwide.

As a Three Dot Dash Global Teen Leader, he has expanded his philanthropic and award-winning social enterprise, which has developed eco gardens across Northern England and within the historic grounds of Durham University.

David has acted as an environmental consultant for countless organisations and is a regular commentator on contemporary climate issues within academic arenas and international media outlets. He has studied the science of climate change at Durham University for 3 years and led a groundbreaking glacier survey expedition to Vatnajökull, Iceland. His most recent venture transformed the medieval Market Square of Durham City into an outdoor cinema to showcase the award-winning documentary Chasing Ice. He then chaired ‘Climate Change Question Time,’ where the public could grill world leading climate experts on the science behind the headlines and how to tackle the problem.

David believes that we must act as a species rather than via fragmented interests in order to tackle this remarkable global disruptor.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
