From 2011 – 2015, TEDxManhattan “Changing the Way We Eat” was a popular and influential event that leveraged the well-known TED conference style to engage a wider audience. It highlighted bold and innovative sustainable food and farming initiatives from around the country and, increasingly, the world. TEDxManhattan was licensed and organized by Diane Hatz, founder and executive director of Change Food.
Bringing together thought leaders from the food movement for over 5 years, TEDxManhattan sparked discussion and spread ideas for improving the food system. TEDxManhattan was one of the top 3 events globally in the food movement – Seeds & Chips and EAT Forum being the other two.
All TEDxManhattan talks are still available as individual videos on YouTube, and these videos have been viewed more than six million times. In the words of Ken Cook, founder and president of the Environmental Working Group, “This institution, TEDxManhattan, has changed the food movement.”
