We live in an incredible era of new possibilities, yet we still face many challenges. Today’s issues are not just limited to technological progress, they cut across all aspects of our society. Our willingness to ask big questions and seek bold solutions to our most pressing problems is at the heart of being human. It’s what drives the dreamers and doers to think outside the box, imagine the impossible, and shoot for the moon.

Now more than ever we need moonshots — bold innovations that aim to address insurmountable problems — to develop new solutions to humanity’s most pressing problems, from climate change to human rights violations. Paving the way forward will not be easy, but the most remarkable challenges always lead to remarkable innovations. To turn these obstacles into opportunities, it is up to each of us to hone our unique skills and come together to achieve a purpose greater than just our own. Through bold innovation and perseverance in the face of obstacles, we we can go from small steps to giant leaps and achieve the impossible.

In 2022, TEDxPearlStreet is shooting for the moon. Join us as we welcome an extraordinary line-up of unorthodox and independent-minded thinkers to the stage to share ideas worth spreading. Be inspired by their bold ideas and courage, as MAVERICKS & MOONSHOTS energizes the audience and inspires change across Washington, DC and beyond.
