TEDxEMU - John Lupinacci - Situational, Local, and In Support of Living Systems

As agents of change, we all have both the capacity and the responsibility to make an ethical choice to examine and challenge how dominant Western cultural ways of thinking have isolated us from recognizing the realities of our ecological existence. This presentation is about hope beyond the violence of modern human culture, suggesting we confront our assumptions about existing as individuals separate from and superior to the greater ecological systems to which we belong.John Lupinacci is a doctoral candidate in the urban education program at Eastern Michigan University, where he is also adjunct faculty and teaches social foundations of education. He has taught at the secondary level in Detroit, and is co-author of the book EcoJustice Education: Toward Diverse, Democratic, and Sustainable Communities. His experience as a high school math and science teacher, an outdoor environmental educator, and a community activist all contribute to researching the relationships between schools and the reproduction of the cultural roots of the ecological crises.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
