About this event

The origins of the modern world can be traced back to the villages of the ancient. Villages provided people with a chance to conduct a grand experiment: how to live together in a shared place. Over time our villages have expanded to the point where the struggle has become how to find a place in both the local and global simultaneously. On October 20, 2012, TEDxDirigo will explore the evolving concept of Villages from a diversity of perspectives and fields—business, natural sciences, technology, art, and more. What are today's villages and what role do they play in shaping our society? What have we learned after thousands of years living together, and what questions remain unresolved? Request an invitation to join the conversation. Come share your village.
