DC (V) - TED Talk "Why are we so bad at reporting good news?" (7 pm ET)

Why are we so bad at reporting good news?                  In a special broadcast from the TED stage, journalist Angus Hervey sheds light on some of the incredible progress humanity has made across environmental protection, public health and more in the last year, making the case that if we want to change the story of humanity this century, we have to start changing the stories we tell ourselves. "When we only tell the stories of doom, we fail to see the stories of possibility," says Hervey. Economist and journalist Angus Hervey founded Fix The News, a media company that seeks out and shares stories of progress from around the world. His weekly newsletter is widely regarded as one of the world's most authoritative and comprehensive sources of stories showing how humanity is actually meeting the big challenges of our time, covering rising living standards, human rights, clean energy, global health, scientific breakthroughs, conservation victories and more. He is on a mission to show that progress is not just possible but happening all around us.

After the talk, we'll have a social discussion of what we heard and the resonance it has in our lives.

Monday, May 13, 2024, 7:00 PM until 8:00 PM
