Medford to get deep in discussion

January 21, 2014 by  

Taking place next week, The Future of Humans is part of the TED Talks series, which is an acronym for Technology, Entertainment, and Design. This talk focuses on a variety of current issues facing mankind. Poster printing and flyer printing might have been used to share information about this event with locals.

Some of the issues currently facing the world include politics, education, social media, global warming, and other relevant issues humans are studying that provide the possibility of an interesting future. One of the questions at the center of the discussion will be “what will our “selfish genes” and our big brains compel us to get into next?”

There will be a viewing period called ‘TED Talks’, followed by a group discussion period. This is part of a monthly discussion group, which is sponsored by the Jackson County Library Services and is open to everyone. People who are interested in where the human race is headed next should be sure to register in advance to attend. The group focuses on the TED non-profit organization’s slogan ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’.

Admission to the event is free, as is parking at the location. The Future of Humans discussion will be held on Tuesday, January 28, from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm at the Medford Branch Library located at 205 South Central Avenue in Medford, Oregon. To learn more about TED, or to register to attend, visit the library’s website or call the branch at 541-774-6421.
