TEDxGreensboroSalon: Sense of Security/Reality of Risk

Description

TICKETS ARE FREE AND REQUIRED - REGISTER NOW!

Salon events are smaller events that keep a TEDx community engaged between regular TEDx events. It’s unique because you, the participants, are involved in the conversation.

We will share TED Talks plus local speakers to build a dialogue with you - the audience. There will be questions, thoughts and ideas and we will all wrestle with what it all means. Enrollment is limited to 75 – come to mix and mingle with other TEDx’ers and to talk about ideas.

OUR FIRST 2016 TEDxGREENSBORO SALON!

At our first 2016 TEDxGreensboroSalon we will examine if it is possible to feel secure even when you are not, or, conversely, are we sometimes more secure than we feel? For example, why is there greater fear of risk associated with flying, when driving is statistically more dangerous? Our fears develop from our perceptions of risk and security, but how well do our perceptions match reality? In our first Salon of 2016, we will examine how this dynamic influences our thinking and our activities.

After viewing a thought-provoking TED Talk about the mirage of security, we will share our thoughts with each other. The discussion will be moderated by Omar H. Ali. Dr. Ali is the 2016 Carnegie Foundation North Carolina Professor of the Year, Associate Professor of Comparative African Diaspora History, and Interim Dean of Lloyd International Honors College at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
