Event Details

Join us for iSEE’s August TED Talk: Eco-Edition event! In celebration of the start of a new semester, we are to discuss ways to take action, get involved, and understand why showing up and taking action is so important!

Together, participants will view a prerecorded TED Talk titled “Greening the Ghetto” by Majora Carter. Afterward, all are invited to participate in a guided discussion and roundtable. Our host is Alexandra Gergova, chair of the Illinois Student Government Environmental Committee on Sustainability.

The TED Talk: Eco-Edition series is designed to unite campus and community members for a passionate, respectful, and thought-provoking dialogue about a certain aspect of sustainability. We hope that everyone is as energized by this talk as we are and ready to engage in another open conversation!

Sign up to learn, discuss, and connect with peers in a casual, social setting. Grab your favorite snack and get comfortable! Topics and hosts vary each month.
