We began as a meeting place along ancient routes from North to South America, a place that came to be known as Chuk-Shon. We want to root these 2013 TEDxTucson talks in a sense of place. We love Tucson and its more than the natural beauty. Each of our TEDx talks this year reflect facets of what makes Tucson a wonderful place to live.
With the big ideas our presenters are sharing, its clear that we’re inventing the future, right here, for the benefit of the rest of the world. Here’s what we have in store for you December 6th at the Rialto.
Pasqua Yaqui leader Marcelino Flores will be sharing tribal creation stories associated with finding balance within the ecosystem, and especially the use of water in the desert.
We have one of the leading experts in the world on the use of big data and social media, Sudha Ram.
During the past year the global media has enabled a local photographer to communicate with people all over the world. We’re delighted to have Jade Beall speak at TEDxTucson. Jade is raising our consciousness about ideas of feminine identity with her Beautiful Bodies Project.
We’re very fortunate to have a regular attendee of the TED Global Conferences, Dr. Allan Hamilton give a talk on the healing power of hope.
Internationally recognized for her discoveries of the science of the mind-body interaction in illness and healing, Dr. Esther Sternberg is a major force in collaborative initiatives on mind-body-stress-wellness and environment inter-relationships.
We’re all increasingly concerned about our environment, what can be done to confront climate change? Chris Cokinos will be speaking about the potential of geoengineering. And the amazingly creative Dr. David Armstrong is going to explain how the future of medicine could very well be found on your personal electronic devices in the form of human apps.
