Did you know that last year, over 14,000 computers tuned in from locations all over the globe to watch the live simulcast of the first TEDxManhattan “Changing the Way We Eat.” This Saturday, January 21, 2012, the second TEDxManhattan “Changing the Way We Eat” will be held at the Times Center in New York City. There, 20 leaders in the field will explore the issues, impacts and the innovations happening as we shift to a more sustainable way of eating and farming. And anyone around the world can share in this exciting day by watching the live webcast at www.livestream.com/tedx from 10:30am – 5:15pm eastern standard time or by attending one of the local viewing parties happening across the country. It’s easy, it’s free, and it will be both informative and inspiring.
If you’d like to be among like-minded individuals to tune into the talks, you may want to stop in at one of the local Viewing Parties being held from Portland, Oregon to Houston, Texas and even Marseille, France. To find a list of Viewing Parties and to connect with them, visit the Viewing Party map on the TEDxManhattan website.
