President and Founder, Florence Reed, is a featured speaker at TEDxDirigo this year.

Climate change and loss of biodiversity threaten the very existence of the human race. While professors and policymakers in ivory towers study, debate, and try to forge agreements, campesinos with little money or education are stabilizing the climate, bringing biodiversity back to degraded lands, and feeding the world. Meet some of these unsung heroes and learn how millions more could join their ranks to become the cornerstone of environmental, economic and social sustainability.

General admission is $100. For tickets click here.


Ideas are powerful, but we can’t stop there. Inspiration and hope won’t get us far unless we take action.

TEDxDirigo RISE will give us the substance and the space to think about what’s important to each of us – and what we can do about it.

This Fall, we ask you to Rise with us at the State Theatre on November 4th.

Attending TEDxDirigo RISE includes:

  • Seeing 12+ live storytellers and performers
  • Snacks + drinks during breaks and reception
  • Connecting with other curious, engaged, and passionate people
  • Surprises!
