About the event
Something amazing is about to happen at The Hamilton Live in Washington, DC.
In 1962, President John F. Kennedy announced the start of the American moonshot, when he famously remarked “We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.” Many doubted that America would be able to achieve such an ambitious goal in such a short time frame, but through bold ideas and sheer perseverance in the face of obstacles, we went from small steps to giant leaps and achieved the impossible.
Fast forward 60 years.
Today we live in an incredible era of new possibilities. And, yet, we still face many challenges. Today’s issues are not just limited to technological progress, they cut across all aspects of our society. Our willingness to ask big questions and seek bold solutions to our most pressing problems is at the heart of being human. It’s what drives the dreamers and doers to think outside the box, imagine the impossible, and shoot for the moon.
Now more than ever we need moonshots — bold innovations that aim to address insurmountable problems — to develop new solutions to humanity’s most pressing problems, from climate change to human rights violations. Paving the way forward will not be easy, but the most remarkable challenges always lead to remarkable innovations. To turn these obstacles into opportunities, it is up to each of us to hone our unique skills and come together to achieve a purpose greater than just our own.
On Thursday, June 09, 2022, TEDxPearlStreet will welcome an extraordinary line-up of thinkers and doers to the stage at the uniquely eclectic The Hamilton Live. Come be inspired by their bold ideas and courage, and share your passions and aspirations with a like-minded group of geniuses, icons and mavericks who are all shooting for the moon.
