The Tri-Cities regional area development and history is a unique story. Where the community came from and where the community is headed is explored in the TED-style Badger Club Meeting. Three ideas will be presented by three different speakers. A recording of Becca Lingley’s TEDxRichland talk “Overcoming Tri-Cities’ Historical Bias” will discuss a chapter that is unfortunately not so unique to the Tri-Cities- that of racial separation and cultural bias. Adam Brault will present his TEDxRichland talk, “The Suburbs Are Broken — Let’s Upgrade the OS!” live. Brault will encourage us to challenge the idea of siloed suburbs within Tri-Cities and beyond. A third TED talk from the global collection will be shown to explore how we can connect on a global level. We will be sharing this topic via Ted Talks, one locally produced on this topic specific to the Tri-Cities, the other live and finally one from a national perspective.
