This event will host up to 100 youth in the Tacoma area who want to be educated, inspired, and empowered on current issues. The event will feature various speakers who will present 10-minute TED-style talks on interdisciplinary issues and work, and will take place on August 29th at The Grand Cinema Theater form 12-3. Tickets are free, but must be reserved in order to save a spot.
The theme for TEDxYouth@WrigthPark is "The Greener Grass", off of the classic idiom "the grass is always greener on the other side." The event will look at how change in our lives and world is shaped by our idea of greener grass.
So often we hear "the grass is always greener on the other side". But many times we must take a step back and evaluate if it truly is. We sacrifice a lot to reach this "greener grass". Whether that means our happiness as a consequence of envy and jealousy. Whether that means the unfair idolization of our role models. Often, we are even sacrificing our water and climate for lush green grass. Maybe it even means sacrificing time now to reach an ideal future. But we must ask ourselves, what are the consequences of viewing our past or future as our ideals? How do our visions of greener grass help and hurt our 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.
