TEDxVillageGate: “Let It Be Me”
Organized by Village Gate Children’s Academy, the school’s mission is to educate children as creative thinkers, problem-solvers and contributing community members. It’s a call to personal and community action: rather than waiting for an unknown “them” to fix things and create a better world, we must rise to the knowledge that “them” is “me.”
Speakers include Vicki Abeles, Director/Producer of Race to Nowhere; Davidji, Lead Educator of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing; Alex Kajitani, 2009 California Teacher of the Year; Mark Kabban, CNN 2012 International Hero; Patti Diaz, co-founder, H20 Trash Patrol, and more.
