2015: Intersections

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, 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.
