    How the US fails working parents -- and what they need to thrive | Reshma Saujani

    How the US fails working parents -- and what they need to thrive | Reshma Saujani

    The pandemic brought into sharp focus the crisis in caregiving in the United States, which woefully under provides support for parents. Activist and Girls Who Code founder Reshma Saujani has a proposal to address that -- something she calls the Marshall Plan for Moms -- and she unpacks how it aims to build radically different systems in order to empower working parents. (This conversation, hosted by TED current affairs curator Whitney Pennington Rodgers, was part of an exclusive TED Membership event on March 23, 2022.

    The US can move past immigration prisons -- and towards justice | César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández

    The US can move past immigration prisons -- and towards justice | César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández

    Imagine seeking safety abroad and instead being detained and forced to defend yourself in a high-stakes legal battle — alone. Law professor César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández explains how the asylum process in the US became warped into what we know today and poses a question that could lead the country out of its labyrinthian policies: In place of investing in more steel doors and barbed wire, what if immigration law was infused with support and justice?

    Could a DAO build the next great city? | Scott Fitsimones

    Could a DAO build the next great city? | Scott Fitsimones

    Could DAOs, or "decentralized autonomous organizations," be the key to building the next great city? Experimental urbanist Scott Fitsimones shares how these mission-driven, blockchain-governed, collectively owned organizations could increase the speed and efficiency of building cities (among many other applications) -- all while pooling decision-making power in a radically collaborative way. Hear about how he started a "crypto co-op" that bought 40 acres of land in Wyoming and learn more about the potential for DAOs to get things done in the future.

    The future of fashion -- made from mushrooms | Dan Widmaier

    Your closet is likely full of all kinds of materials -- leather, cotton, nylon and polyester, to name a few -- that contribute to fashion's sustainability crisis. Biomaterials investigator Dan Widmaier explains how we could look to nature for sustainable replacements for these much-used materials and introduces a leather alternative made from mushrooms that looks great and doesn't harm the environment. "We can make fashion sustainable, and we're going to do it with science," Widmaier says.

Good job

Can’t thing of anything negative but you guys are hilarious and it feels like your talking to us not throwing facts at our faces.

Harsh But Fair ,

Unsubscribed after the Ken Chenault infomercial

TED used to be great, but the quality of their speakers has declined greatly in the last few years. They also appear to be completely uncritical of the claims that get presented, even when there are obvious inconsistencies in the guest’s narrative. I honestly should have given up on them when they removed commenting from their site, because it was clear at that point that TED was no longer interested in the exchange of ideas.

4 day work week

Does every talk have to touch on climate change and racism even when those two subjects have nothing to do with the topic. Enough of the woke mentality.
