Event Details

TEDxGreenville is hosting a viewing party for TEDxManhattan “Changing the Way We Eat”. Speakers with various backgrounds in food and farming will share their insights and expertise.  And, hopefully, we’ll have a few surprises during the day.  A highlight of the event is the ample time given for attendees to meet each other and look for new synergies and new ideas to help bolster the sustainable food movement.

An overview of the program is below.

While the event is free, please register so we know how many refreshments to order and how many seats to set up. You may choose to come to all of the day or just the parts you are most interested in attending.

TEDxGreenville was the first independently organized TEDx event in South Carolina. Now in its sixth year, the TEDxGreenville movement is igniting passions and building bridges like never before, while highlighting the incredible people and organizations that make the Upstate of South Carolina one of the best places to live on the planet.

About TEDx, where x = independently organized event

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, 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 and all done by volunteers.
