About TEDxWaldenPond2.0

Massachusetts has been at the forefront of many innovations and ideas that have benefited our country and the planet: new technologies, expansive philosophies, and establishing progressive laws that protect the rights of our citizens. Essentially, Massachusetts has created many “Ideas Worth Spreading” which is TED’s motto.We are proud of our history. Centuries of great people came before us. Many with actions and ideals that shaped not only our towns, but the USA and the world in measurable and immeasurable ways. We take great pride and diligence in restorative projects that maintain our treasured community. What can we, those of us alive today, do that those who come after us will be proud of? What can we set in motion that will positively affect future generations. Every action creates a reaction. TEDxWaldenPond will be a collective action in authentic dialogues with our futures very much in mind.
