TEDxOilSpill will explore new ideas for our energy future, and how we can mitigate the current crisis in the Gulf
TED conferences bring together the world’s leading thinkers and doers for a series of talks, presentations and performances. 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.
What can you expect to see? Speakers at TED events – some of the world’s most fascinating, innovative and influential individuals – are challenged to give “the talk of their life” in 18 minutes or less. Attendees are as exceptional as the speakers. Sharing and connection happens from the stage or in the lounge. It’s the conversation that will change your life.
TEDxOilSpill will be held June 28, 2010, and will follow the TED form and spirit. TEDx events are independently self-organized events, licensed by TED.
