From its beginnings as a one-off event in 1984, TED (originally focused on the convergence of technology, entertainment and design) has expanded in scope and grown into a worldwide phenomenon. The annual conference, now held in Califonia, is complemented by TEDGlobal sister conferences as well as non-profit TEDx events, organized in 130 countries by independent groups with the support of TED.
TEDxBarcelona has been furthering TED’s mission – “ideas worth spreading” – since its creation in 2009. Join them this month as they show a video of a TED talk, The four fish we’re overeating – and what to eat instead by American author Paul Greenberg, that presents the current situation of overfishing, the irrationality of the seafood economy and alternative, plant-based sources of protein.
The screening will be followed by a discussion and networking session. (Video is in English with Spanish subtitles.)
