Registration now open!
On Saturday, February 16th, 2013, TEDxManhattan “Changing the Way We Eat” will be held at the Times Center in New York City. This one-day TEDx event will explore the food system as we shift to a more sustainable way of eating and farming. The goal of “Changing the Way We Eat” is to create new synergies, connections and collaborations across disciplines, to unite different areas of the food movement, and to introduce the TEDx audience to the exciting and innovative work being done in this field. The Glynwood Institute for Sustainable Food and Farming is the lead sponsor for TEDxManhattan.
How to Participate:
1. The TEDxManhattan event will be curated and audience members hand selected so that attendees are a balanced mix of academics, researchers, health professionals, farmers, foodies, chefs, advocates, foundations, public figures and TEDsters, ensuring a diverse audience that can facilitate new ideas and synergies with each other. To learn how to attend “Changing the Way We Eat,” please visit www.tedxmanhattan.org/apply. If you are selected to attend the event, the ticket price will be $135.00.
There is no official deadline for registration, but the event has sold out with hundreds of people turned away each year, so please apply early.
