The first TEDxPeacePlaza took place on Saturday, November 9, 2013, at Pa'ina Lounge in San Francisco's Japantown.

Our speaker talks addressed our theme “What’s Possible.” Seemingly intractable problems. Surprisingly ingenious solutions. In a world full of inequality, conflict, and hardships, there are remarkable examples of what actually can be done. What innovations are possible that can help create a world that we want to live in? “What’s Possible” can be interpreted as both a bold statement and an inviting question.

The San Francisco Japantown Foundation and San Francisco Food ( sponsored the event, which attracted 100 attendees.
