TEDxManhattan: Changing How We Eat

This is the week that is for TED Talks and simulcast TEDxTelluride Live, produced by Katrine and Bill Formby.

“At our TEDxTellurideLive event, TEDTalks video featuring dynamic speakers should spark deep discussion and connection in a small group,” explains Katrine.

TEDxManhattan: Changing the Way We Eat took place March 7. In its fifth year, TEDxManhattan is organized every year by Diane Hatz of Change Food to help people “understand the food system on a broader scale.” The event brings together key experts in the field of sustainable food and farming.

The much-anticipated videos from this year’s event have not yet been posted online, but in the meantime, the organizers put together an 18-minute video of 18 speakers from the talks. The video, which features a one-minute clip of each speaker, highlights the amazing work being done in the food movement to address the pressing environmental and social justice issues involved in our modern food system.

Every year, the event has hosted dynamic speakers from across the food movement including Danielle Nierenberg of Food Tank, Tom Colicchio of Food Policy Action, Anna Lappé of Small Planet Institute and Wenonah Hauter of Food & Water Watch. This year was no different with many great food activists who spoke about issues such as the necessity of women farmers in the food movement, how U.S. law favors large agribusiness companies and not small farmers, and why organic really isn’t more expensive.

The talks have been viewed online more than 6.1 million times.
