Event description

Description

In Atherton, CA the heart of Silicon Valley and the wealthiest city in America TEDxMenloCollege will explore the relationship between technology, culture, and society with the goal of answering the question: how do we build the America of tomorrow? We are now firmly in an epoch of humanity defined by our relationship to technology and where actions in one corner of the planet can be immediately felt around the world. However, we are just coming to terms with this reality and the impact rapid change has on our own humanity.

Inspired by the song This is America by Childish Gambino, we hope to challenge what America means and where we are headed both as a country and a global community.

For some, the technological revolution here in Silicon Valley has greatly improved quality of life and opportunity. Still others across the world and even in our own backyard are left out. Global conflicts, environmental change, and human migration have caused hardship for many. However, we hope to give a platform to the voices that will spark the change America and the world needs.
