Do you think we need to change the way we eat in this country?
On February 12, that will be the topic of discussion for an amazing array of speakers – including Slow Food USA’s President Josh Viertel. It’s part of the TEDx events: short, carefully prepared talks to share ‘ideas worth spreading’. And the good news is you can be a part of it!
Joining Josh at the one day event will be over 20 high-profile speakers including the makers of “King Corn”, the first farmer to receive a MacArthur ‘Genius’ Fellowship, and the USDA’s coordinator of ‘Know Your Farmer, Know your Food’, all sharing ideas about how we can shift our industrial food system to one that provides good, clean, fair food for all.
This is a fantastic opportunity to stimulate these conversations in your local area. And a great excuse to get together with like-minded people in your community! Click here to find out how to host or attend a live ‘Viewing Party’ on Saturday February 12:
Can’t make a Viewing Party? No problem! We’ll be live-streaming the TEDx talks on our website, so you can take part in the conversation from the comfort of your own home.
TEDx talks feature thought leaders at the cutting edge of their industry. This day is focused entirely on food – a testament to the importance of finding new ways to redefine the way we grow and eat food.
The thought-provoking speakers can be broadcast right into your home, cafe, town hall – or wherever you want to gather to share these ideas in your community. Click here to find out more: http://tedxmanhattan.org/viewing-parties/
Thanks for being a part of the solution,
The Slow Food USA team
