Theme: Betterness

About this event

The best TEDxAtlanta moments have almost all had the singular quality of revealing betterness. In an 18-minute talk, we came to know of an act or invention or discovery or creation that is making our world better. For TEDxAtlanta2014, we went in search of the best examples of betterness. True steps forward, whether small or large, simple or complex. It will be an afternoon certain to make us all grateful for the breadth and depth of talent in our midst.
