TEDxYouth@WrightPark at The Grand Cinema

Thursday, August 29, 2019, 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

This event will serve youth in the Tacoma area who want to be educated, empowered, and inspired on current issues. The event will feature various speakers who will present 15-minute TED-style talks on interdisciplinary issues and works. The theme of TEDxYouth@WrightPark is "The Greener Grass." So often we hear the phrase, "the grass is greener on the other side," but many times we must take a step back and evaluate if it truly is. In the end, we sacrifice a lot to reach this "greener grass." Whether that means sacrificing our happiness as a consequence of envy, or whether it means the unfair idolization of our role models. Often, we are even sacrificing our water and climate for lush green grass. How do our visions of greener grass help and hurt or lives and world? At TEDxYouth@WrightPark we will look through a variety of lenses and disciplines at how the journey to a better world is shaped by our idea of greener grass.
