Associate Professor of Philosophy Katheryn Doran presented a community session/workshop titled “How Can You Save the Earth?” at the TEDSummit in Banff, Canada, June 25-29.

Doran proposed the session this spring and survived two rounds of cuts to make it onto the program. One of the important reasons she attended the TEDx portion of the conference was so that the college would be able to obtain a license to host events with audiences of 200 or more.

One thousand attendees from around the world were joined by more than 100 TED speakers for what the TEDSummit website called “community brainstorms, discussions, performances, workshops, outdoor activities and an eclectic program of mainstage talks.”
