About this event

Humanity’s biggest challenges are also some of the most familiar. How we deal with population growth, climate change, and future energy demands depends on how we frame these questions, and too often our ability to find new, innovative solutions is limited by political and ideological biases. What if we were to look at the world anew?

By asking a range of talented thinkers and doers “What If?” TEDxMidAtlantic 2010 will unleash fresh, new perspectives by framing old questions differently — and by asking thoughtful, new questions. Join us in exploring this hopeful future, where difficult problems become achievable and the impossible is merely hard.
