Around seventy people showed up at the University of Hawaii at Hilo for TEDxHiloChange 2013. Discussion erupted over Roger Thurow's perspectives on farming and food from anti-gmo attendees. Although discussion time was limited, a lot of the attendees mentioned local positive disruptions happening on Hawaii Island.

At the end of the night, an organizer's meeting was held to support everyone interested in facilitating the next TEDxHilo.
