TEDxMSU will host 2016: Mobius on Wednesday, Mar. 2, 2016, at the Wharton Center. Building off the mathematical/geometric concept of a Möbius strip, a 2D construct existing in our 3D world, we challenge our community to consider concepts that might be unfamiliar—or uncanny—at first glance. We gear up for another year of amplifying, discussing, and considering ideas at a one-of-a-kind conference featuring interdisciplinary presenters, speakers and innovations in the spirit of TEDx, right here on the banks of the Red Cedar.
The speakers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and inspirations, including one of SPDC’s own master’s students Rohit Menon, and thus carry with them contrasting insights. Collectively, they share a commitment to the MSU and Greater Lansing community, and a simultaneous passion for inspiring mindfulness—and challenging the status quo—in the world around them. Rohit Menon will touch on the role of cities in local economic development, and the need to focus on experiences to build robust economies.
