TEDxMidAtlantic: Unbreakable

March 29-30, 2019 – Washington, DC

What does it mean to be strong? We live in a world being put to the test, and seemingly on the brink — so how can we make our systems, structures, and institutions stronger? How can we make things less fragile, and simpler — or manage complexity and increase resilience?

When we face challenges, do we stand rigid against the wind — or are we energized, like a turbine? We’ll explore the promising ideas that can help us turn adversity into strength, and help make our civic systems and shared culture become UNBREAKABLE.
