TEDxMileHigh: VISION – A Free Virtual Event

December 5, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join us as we come together for TEDxMileHigh: VISION

About this Event

What do you see for the future, or can you see at all? The way forward is messy and clouded by complex challenges. And, while there is no magical formula for perfect vision, when we ground ourselves and look inward, we start to see more clearly and reconnect with our humanity.

And while there is no blueprint that will guarantee perfect clarity as we move forward, we can look to our guides: humility, curiosity, and ingenuity.

We can look to the past, knowing that a vision for what lies ahead cannot be divorced from remembrance of what lies behind. It takes courage to admit mistakes. It requires boldness to share your voice. And it takes vision to step back so that we can move forward together.

Every new idea was deemed impossible until someone came along and shared a new reality. We invite you to share your vision. We don’t care what’s possible. We want to know that you’ll dream with us and that we’ll awaken each other until we do the impossible.

Join us on December 5th, as we explore new ideas in science, art, health, poetry, and activism.
