TEDxMidAtlantic 2015: Intersections
September 25 & 26 – Washington, DC
Since the turn of the millennium, the story of humanity has been one of collaboration and connection, driven by a global economy and the infusion of technology into our daily lives. Disparate disciplines have intersected, forging unexpected innovation, and bringing newfound prosperity.
At the same time, we find ourselves at a crossroads on critical issues. Broken drug policy, mass incarceration, bankrupt social security, a changing climate, ballooning education costs, and disenfranchised inner cities whose frustration and hopelessness has boiled over onto the streets.
TEDxMidAtlantic 2015 will both celebrate the intersections that are building a world of abundance while challenging us to pick a direction that will shape our nation — and our world — for the rest of the century.
TEDxMidAtlantic 2013 Talks:
TEDxMidAtlantic celebrates the power of ideas
to positively change the world.
We aim to build community by bringing together
like-minded people who believe in this mission.
Highlights from TEDxMIDATLANTIC 2010: WHAT IF?
TED conferences bring together the world’s leading thinkers and doers for a series of talks, presentations and performances. TED events have been called “The ultimate brain spa,” “Davos for optimists” and “A journey into the future, in the company of those creating it.”
What is TEDx? In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At TEDxMidAtlantic, live speakers will spark deep discussion and connection. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
