Join us this month for our 33rd TED Talk Salon:

It's an unexpected side effect of globalization: problems that once would have stayed local now have consequences worldwide. But countries still operate as if alone on the planet. Policy advisor Simon Anholt has dreamed up an unusual scale to get governments thinking outwardly: The Good Country Index. In a riveting and funny talk, he answers the question, "Which country does the most good?" The answer may surprise you.

Socializing from 2:30, Talk played at about 2:50; followed by small group/whole group discussion until 5:00.

Monthly, we watch a video recorded TED Talk by someone notable in his/her field. After watching the talk, we discuss it. All are welcome to attend and share your thoughts, questions, and experiences around the topic.
