TEDxBattenkill will take to the stage in Manchester for the third year running on Saturday, October 3rd 2015 at the Southern Vermont Arts Center. 2015’s theme, in the spirit of Connecting Creative Communities, is “Vigilantes of Extinction” and our speakers will be outstanding individuals considered “Superheroes” in their fields of interest and expertise. From the pool of speaker nominations we will focus on topics that share ideas and actions about the things people are doing to prevent the extinction of “anything” important to humankind and the earth. For example, the extinction of cultures, the economy, languages, biodiversity, a livable climate and even the human race.
