Emma Seppala explains the science behind social connection.
Published on Jul 18, 2013
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
Our 2013 theme is Applied Peace Innovation
What is Peace Innovation? We define it as the application of social capital and technology used to decrease hostility, increase the existence of healthy interpersonal and international relationships, promote safety in matters of social or economic welfare, and further the acknowledgment of equality and fairness in political relationships.
We'll be showcasing examples this year from health, society and business. Please come back to see us as new speakers are added and join us for free on May 9th, 2013 @ Cal State East Bay!
