10 Intersectional & Educational Climate Action Accounts on Instagram

In anticipation of TED’s Countdown, we are sharing some Instagram accounts for your social feed to stay up-to-date, informed, and engaged with the climate movement.

Countdown is a global initiative happening on October 30 that is focused on championing and accelerating solutions to the climate crisis with the main overreaching goal of turning ideas into action.

Last year on October 30, 2020, Happily participated in the Countdown initiative with a TEDxHappily live broadcast. Our Happily TEDxHappily Countdown 2020 event was centered around our own Happily values of:

  1. Reduce: Ideas and resources about reducing emissions and waste in our community
  2. Represent: Climate change requires equity and justice
  3. Reinvest: Reinvesting in local and forgotten spaces and communities
  4. Respect: World peace is possible in our lifetime
