The second annual TEDxManhattan “Changing the Way We Eat” – an independently organized event, licensed by TED – is being held in New York City on Saturday. The Slow Food Chattanooga Chapter, along with Gaining Ground, will host an official viewing party of the 2012 event via a live simulcast, joining communities from around the globe that will also be hosting local viewing events.
The viewing party will be held Saturday, at Gaining Ground, 55 East Main Street Suite 102. It will begin at 10:30 a.m. and continue until 5:30 p.m., with a lunchtime potluck and mid-afternoon discussion.
Slow Food and Gaining Ground welcome those interested to come and go as their schedule allows.
The Glynwood Institute for Sustainable Food and Farming is the lead sponsor of this one-day TEDx event that will explore the issues, impacts and innovations happening in the world of food as we shift to a more sustainable way of eating and farming. This world-class line-up of speakers is not to be missed.
