TEDxChange 2013 Official Satellite Event on Hawaii Island

TEDxHilo will be broadcasting TEDxChange 2013 live from Seattle on Wednesday, April 3rd at 6:30pm at the University of Hawaii at Hilo in UCB 100. The public is invited to this free event. A TEDxHilo organizer meeting will be held after the discussion.


TEDxHilo will be one of only 200 official satellite events held around the world. Convened by Melinda Gates, the 2013 theme is Positive Disruption.

“Disruption is usually unwelcome. It represents conflict, chaos, and potential danger,” said event organizer Jennifer Ruggles. “We discourage disruptive behavior in our homes and our societies, often favoring passivity and compliance.”

When asked if there would be any positive disruptions at the event, Ms. Ruggles replied, “You bet, we’ll be broadcasting and discussing how disruption can be a positive – sometimes vital – catalyst for change. We’ll be challenging old assumptions, igniting conversations, shedding light on difficult issues, giving a fresh urgency and perspective to the challenges on Hawaii Island.”
