You’ve probably heard about TED. TED conferences bring together the world’s leading thinkers and doers for a series of talks, presentations and performances. A small nonprofit devoted to “Ideas Worth Spreading,” TED started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader.
The newest addition to the TED repertoire are the TEDx programs, and one of them is coming to DC on Monday.
TEDxOilSpill will explore new ideas for our energy future, and how we can mitigate the current crisis in the Gulf. TEDxOilSpill will tackle the tough questions raised by the recent and ongoing environmental catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico. Topics will include mitigation of the spill and the impending cleanup efforts; energy alternatives; policy and economics; as well as new technology that can help us build a self-reliant culture.
