An idea worth spreading
Human beings are not sustainable, we are evolving into a species dependent upon consuming. If all of the insects on Earth died tomorrow, the Earth would die in a matter of days. If all of the humans died tomorrow, the Earth would flourish. What do we collectively give back to the system? I would like to see individual ecological efforts broadened so that human beings start to become as important to Earth as Earth is to us.

My TED story
A huge fan of TED and where I first discovered biologist Richard Dawkins. Since then I have have become a TED enthusiast and evangelist. In 2010 I was on the organizing committee that brought the first TEDx conference to the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania region.
TEDxPhoenixville is held in September but is proceeded by smaller monthly salons featuring TED talks.
Of the live TEDx events I have attended, educational messages have struck me deepest. Educators speaking about the inanity of teaching and learning subjects that are not needed in contexts that are misunderstood. We need to stop talking about a broken education system and enact change. Everyone knows that we are not preparing children for a global economy and that they are learning things that they will never need in which they have no interest but the next step is enacting real change.
