On May 19, 2018 the City of Chula Vista participated in one of the most talked global events for sharing ideas. We are so honored to share our contributions with the TED community.
Our conference theme started from a series of questions. “What would happen if we brought TED Talks to Chula Vista?” Could there be a shift in awareness?
We believed something global could occur in a local community. We believed a, “Shift into Awareness” would happen.
This conference is about the shifts we make as a community, as humans. The shift we make on personal and interpersonal level. It is the artist shifts that happen, and the spiritual shifts that happen.
