TEDx San Diego - Gad Shaanan - Green-Alternative thinking

Industrial designer Gad Shaanan will be forever influenced by a quote from his father, "We are too poor to buy something cheap." Shaanan makes us rethink being green today by finding ways to leave our planet green for generations to come. Instead of merely considering how recyclable the contents are, he suggests we buy products that bring value and longevity to the world. He proposes we build homes that last centuries and questions why we build multi-ton cars just to move a 170-pound person around instead of developing more efficient transportation.About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
