  1. Our democracy no longer represents the people. Here’s how we fix it | Larry Lessig | TEDxMidAtlantic

    Harvard Professor Lawrence Lessig makes the case that our democracy has become corrupt with money, leading to inequality that means only 0.02% of the United States population actually determines who’s in power. Lessig says that this fundamental breakdown of the democratic system must be fixed before we will ever be able to address major challenges like climate change, social security, and student debt. This is not the most important problem, it’s just the first problem.

    Lawrence Lessig is the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership at Harvard Law School, former director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University, and founder of Rootstrikers, a network of activists leading the fight against government corruption. He has authored numerous books, including Republic, Lost: How Money Corrupts Our Congress—and a Plan to Stop It, Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace, Free Culture, and Remix.

  2. Imagining a SolarPunk Future | Keisha Howard | TEDxOgden

    As we imagine what life will be like in the future, often times, our media and entertainment emphasize a world of "Cyberpunk" an idea and aesthetic that focuses on advanced technological and scientific achievements, such as artificial intelligence and cybernetics but simultaneously is often dystopic and depicts a breakdown of society.

    Recently the idea of SolarPunk has been gaining steam (though still a relatively unknown concept). Solarpunk is similar to cyberpunk with a focus on technology, however, Solarpunk offers a version of the future where communities are powered by renewable energy and most people live in a free and egalitarian world.

    Both ideas of the future focus on mankind and it’s use of tech, but rarely in our media do we see our future from a more positive, sustainable perspective (even though the technology for it already exist). I’d like to consider the idea of what a solarpunk future looks like and consider some avenues on how we get there as a society. Keisha Howard is the Founder of Sugar Gamers and an advocate for "Girl Power" and opening up non-traditional spaces for women.

  4. Teach every child about food | Jamie Oliver

    http://www.ted.com Sharing powerful stories from his anti-obesity project in Huntington, W. Va., TED Prize winner Jamie Oliver makes the case for an all-out assault on our ignorance of food.

    Jamie Oliver is transforming the way we feed ourselves, and our children. Jamie Oliver has been drawn to the kitchen since he was a child working in his father’s pub-restaurant. He showed not only a precocious culinary talent but also a passion for creating (and talking about) fresh, honest, delicious food. In the past decade, the shaggy-haired "Naked Chef" of late-’90s BBC2 has built a worldwide media conglomerate of TV shows, books, cookware and magazines, all based on a formula of simple, unpretentious food that invites everyone to get busy in the kitchen. And as much as his cooking is generous, so is his business model — his Fifteen Foundation, for instance, trains young chefs from challenged backgrounds to run four of his restaurants.

    Now, Oliver is using his fame and charm to bring attention to the changes that Brits and Americans need to make in their lifestyles and diet. Campaigns such as Jamie’s School Dinner, Ministry of Food and Food Revolution USA combine Olivers culinary tools, cookbooks and television, with serious activism and community organizing — to create change on both the individual …
