How Time Auction works

1. Earn Karma

Donating and logging past volunteer hours earns you Karma Points, which you can then use to bid on auctions. $1 donated earns 1 Karma Point and 1 hour volunteered earns 10 Karma Points.

2. Bid

Bid your Karma Points to meet inspiring people, such as humanitarians, entrepreneurs, athletes, or artists. Most auctions allow every bidder to win if the goal is reached.

3. Meet

Time Auction is all about priceless experiences and rewards for the priceless philanthropy you do. Depending on the auction, meetings are done virtually or in person... or both!

What we do

2020 is the year for Countdown, a bold, global movement to find ways to shift, more rapidly, to a world with net zero greenhouse emissions and tackle the climate crisis. Countdown will be anchored by a summit of leaders in science, government, business, philanthropy, activism and more, taking place virtually on 10.10.2020. That same week, hundreds of satellite events will be hosted and organized by communities around the world. Many of the practices, ideas and stories shared will be further amplified by TED and YouTube’s global platforms. ​ In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” TED has created TEDx, a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connections. Encompass HK is a social enterprise committed to promote the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We hope through our TEDxEncompassHK events with our theme “Our Actions Count”, we’ll be able to drive individual behavioral changes in combating the climate crisis.
