TEDx San Diego to talk environment

United States
San Diego Union Tribune

Two top environmental experts from the San Diego region have been tapped to speak at TEDx San Diego, a daylong event of compelling speeches from innovators in science, technology, conservation and entertainment.

The Nov. 8 function will feature Tony Haymet, the director of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at University of California San Diego, one of the oldest centers for ocean and science research in the world.

The other local speaker is Bill Toone, director of Escondido-based nonprofit group ECOLIFE Foundation. Toone is a well-known advocate for conservation.

TEDx San Diego, to be held at Anthology in Little Italy, is an independent event inspired by the format of the famous TED talks, which join a small audience with leading thinkers in different fields to spark discussion.

Tickets are sold out, but the event will be streamed live at the group's website. Organizers also are encouraging San Diegans to have screening meet-ups.

San Diegans also can get involved with TEDx San Diego-sponsored "conversations" with the speakers online via Twitter and Facebook.

The Union-Tribune will help moderate the discussions through this blog and Twitter.

The first conversation is being held 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Thursday and will feature Jason Russell, one of the founders of Invisible Children, a nonprofit group that documents the lives of people in war-torn areas to educate people and encourage social change.
