2012 TEDxManhattan “Changing the Way We Eat” Videos Online & On DVD

Earlier this year, New York City learned about how we can inspire change in the way we eat at the one-day TEDx Manhattan event at the Times Forum. The Glynwood Institute for Sustainable Food and Farming was lead sponsor of the event that focused specifically on how we can promote a more sustainable, local approach to producing and eating food.  Now, the entire day of presentations from leading innovators and professionals  is available online and on DVD.  The TEDxManhattan DVD is free for noncommercial educational uses and can be ordered by emailing: TEDxManhattan@gmail.com. The videos can also be viewed online via the TEDxManhattan website.

Speakers for the event were:

Patty Cantrell – Regional Food Systems
Marianne Cufone – Recirculating Farms Coalition
Mitchell Davis – James Beard Foundation
Wenonah Hauter – Food & Water Watch
Howard Hinterthuer – Center for Veteran’s Issues
Michelle Hughes – Greenmarket/GrowNYC
Fred Kirschenmann – Leopold Center for Sustainable Ag/Stone Barns Center
Robert Lawrence – Center for a Livable Future/Johns Hopkins University
Paul Lightfoot – BrightFarms
Gary Oppenheimer – AmpleHarvest.org
Wayne Pacelle – Humane Society of United States
Cara Rosaen – RealTimeFarms.com
Urvashi  Rangan – Consumer Reports
Stephen Ritz – Green Bronx Machine
Kavita Shukla – Fenugreen
David Wallinga – Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy

The Glynwood Institute has also created Dinner and Some Ed, a website and project to encourage consumers to host a sustainable meal and enjoy discussions around TED and TEDx talks on sustainable food.  The meals tie in perfectly with the 2012 TEDxManhattan DVD.

    We don’t actually get a lot of spam. We have a very serious fire wall that requires captcha codes and other things to post. Hope that helps?
