Theme: Business for a Better World
View video –> Impossible is a Dare: Business for a Better World
How can business organize itself to meaningfully address big-picture problems like hunger, poverty, war, and catastrophic climate change–primarily by thinking differently about resources?
Turning hunger and poverty into sufficiency, war into peace, and pending climate catastrophe into planetary balance are all based on looking at resources – who has how much, how it’s used, how the waste products are disposed of. Business, as both a creator of the problems and a cradle for innovation, can facilitate these transitions. Shel Horowitz, Business Strategist from Hadley, MA shows us how.
Admission is free. Pre-registration is not required.
The deli at McCusker’s Market will be open to purchase food and drink.
The general format of the night is designed by the guest Curator, Daniel Leiberman, and/or to include a presentation by one featured live Speaker, viewing of 2-3 TED talk videos supporting the theme, and facilitated discussion. Stacy Kontrabecki, TEDxShelburneFalls’ Curator & Organizer, will oversee.
About TEDxSalons A TEDx Salon is a small, recurring event that can be held monthly, quarterly or at other intervals. A minimum of three events must be held a year to qualify as a Salon license. At a Salon, attendees can watch TED Talks, host a few speakers and have informal discussions about the recorded TED Talks. TEDx Salon events (unlike standard, corporate and university events) may focus on a single subject area and feature as many as (but no more than) four live speakers.

A TEDx Salon is a short-format, small, recurring event where attendees can watch TED Talks, host a few speakers and have informal discussions about a specific and focused topic, somewhat different than the larger multidisciplinary approach that is presented at a longer/larger TEDx conference. Similarly, both types of events focus on the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world.
