In a moving talk, journalist Johann Hari shares fresh insights on the causes of depression and anxiety from experts around the world -- as well as some exciting emerging solutions. "If you're depressed or anxious, you're not weak and you're not crazy -- you're a human being with unmet needs," Hari says.
To study a system as complex as the entire universe, astrophysicists need to be experts at extracting simple solutions from large data sets. What else could they do with this expertise? In an interdisciplinary talk, TED Fellow and astrophysicist Federica Bianco explains how she uses astrophysical data analysis to solve urban and social problems -- as well as stellar mysteries.
Rising carbon levels in the atmosphere can make plants grow faster, but there's another hidden consequence: they rob plants of the nutrients and vitamins we need to survive. In a talk about global food security, epidemiologist Kristie Ebi explores the potentially massive health consequences of this growing nutrition crisis -- and explores the steps we can take to ensure all people have access to safe, healthy food.
Rising inequality and growing political instability are the direct result of decades of bad economic theory, says entrepreneur Nick Hanauer. In a visionary talk, he dismantles the mantra that "greed is good" -- an idea he describes as not only morally corrosive, but also scientifically wrong -- and lays out a new theory of economics powered by reciprocity and cooperation.
Community organizer Raj Jayadev wants to transform the US court system through "participatory defense" -- a growing movement that empowers families and community members to impact their loved ones' court cases. He shares the remarkable results of their work -- including more than 4,000 years of "time saved" from incarceration -- and shows how this new model could shift the landscape of power in the courts.
Reading slowly -- with her finger running beneath the words, even when she was taught not to -- has led Jacqueline Woodson to a life of writing books to be savored. In a lyrical talk, she invites us to slow down and appreciate stories that take us places we never thought we'd go and introduce us to people we never thought we'd meet. "Isn't that what this is all about -- finding a way, at the end of the day, to not feel alone in this world, and a way to feel like we've changed it before we leave?" she asks.
The use of deepfake technology to manipulate video and audio for malicious purposes -- whether it's to stoke violence or defame politicians and journalists -- is becoming a real threat. As these tools become more accessible and their products more realistic, how will they shape what we believe about the world? In a portentous talk, law professor Danielle Citron reveals how deepfakes magnify our distrust -- and suggests approaches to safeguarding the truth.
Carl June is the pioneer behind CAR T-cell therapy: a groundbreaking cancer treatment that supercharges part of a patient's own immune system to attack and kill tumors. In a talk about a breakthrough, he shares how three decades of research culminated in a therapy that's eradicated cases of leukemia once thought to be incurable -- and explains how it could be used to fight other types of cancer.
When we define racism as behaviors instead of feelings, we can measure it -- and transform it from an impossible problem into a solvable one, says justice scientist Phillip Atiba Goff. In an actionable talk, he shares his work at the Center for Policing Equity, an organization that helps police departments diagnose and track racial gaps in policing in order to eliminate them. Learn more about their data-driven approach -- and how you can get involved with the work that still needs to be done. (This ambitious plan is part of the Audacious Project, TED's initiative to inspire and fund global change.)
"I dream of a world where geography classes teach about the climate crisis as this one great challenge that was won by people like you and me," says climate activist Luisa Neubauer. With Greta Thunberg, Neubauer helped initiate "Fridays For Future," the momentous international school strike movement that protests the lack of action on the climate crisis. She shares four first steps that anyone, regardless of age, can take to become a climate activist. "This is not a job for a single generation. This is a job for humanity," she says.

sounds great and all.... but the money holding power chips on the table are not going to pay out people doing work middle class and take cuts to their profits... it's a slave system currently... but they don't call it that because they pay you

I support a lot of trump's policies, but I 100% agree that trump did not do right by not condemning kim Jong uns treatment of his people

Such a shallow analysis of what true propaganda is. I find it insulting to see his correlations of misinformation tied only to conservatism. Sure, he's well spoken, and I assume can string some words together in the written form. But bias is bias, and this speech was nothing but that. It is unfortunate that he ruins a good point, which is that emotional response is our biggest obstacle. This happens by all, and is what is driving us to such diversive societal beliefs. However, it is only fuel for the fire when he points a finger one way, and then says that social media leaders must resist such toxic behavior. Be honest fella, it happens on both sides of the ideological landscape, and it is what is destroying civility. That does not give credit to censorship, and should never contradict the rights embedded in our country's constitution. It is a slippery slope to tell someone that their views are not socially acceptable, when you obviously stand on one side and refuse to acknowledge the extremism that happens behind your back as you point and blame those in front of you.

JustAGuy well said, very true. I haven't listened to the podcast episode that you're commenting on but your evaluation is a cogent illustration reflecting the bifurcated agenda of America's Media, Government, proletariat & the 1% alike.

Manna Neghassi That was precisely my stance as well, prowling on emotional response is wrong and has been quickly breaking the threads of humanity. However I couldn't help but notice that the examples of misinformation were one sided, and pointed fingers at those extreme examples of conservatism. The misinformation and hate is coming from all sides of the ideological map. I believe the author loses credibility with the narrow minded examples. Why you think my point is a false equivalent is still beyond my comprehension, which is why I asked for your deeper thoughts on the claim. I'm always willing to consider my stance, and will correct when I'm wrong. Either way, thanks for reading my comment. Hopefully it was thought provoking enough to have you consider your stance as well.

Oh, please! She said it, this is about changing the distribution of power, this is the left that after failing with the "class fight" has now found another way to seize power.
