In-person at Trailside
The nonprofit TED, standing for Technology, Entertainment, Design, offers knowledge and inspiration from the world’s foremost thinkers under the moniker “ideas worth spreading,” free online. These talks give access to the world’s most inspiring voices, discussing a vast range of themes. Join educator Mike Trebilcock on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month during lunch to watch a TED talk (typically 10-20 minutes each) and participate in lively discussion about the ideas presented.
Stand with Ukraine in the fight against evil
Ukraine is on the front line of a war between freedom and tyranny, says chess grandmaster and human rights advocate Garry Kasparov. In this blistering call to action, he traces Vladimir Putin’s rise to power and details his own path from chess world champion to pro-democracy activist in Russia. His message is a challenge to global leaders to rise in support of Ukraine — and to choose life and love over death and hatred.
Nuclear threat and the war in Ukraine
Nuclear security expert Emma Belcher delivers an overview of the war in Ukraine, outlines its implications for the deployment of nuclear weapons on the global stage, and offers a vision for how we can try to ensure a peaceful future free of such destructive weaponry.
Ukraine’s fight to keep educating its children
The Russian invasion of Ukraine has destroyed so much — including hundreds of schools, where the country’s children were forging their futures — but it has not stopped Ukrainians from pursuing knowledge and curiosity. In a deeply moving talk, education leader Zoya Lytvyn shares her first-hand experience evacuating Kyiv and takes us inside the ongoing effort to continue educating children amid war and destruction.
