WDCEP Participates in Washington’s First Ever TEDWomen Event

On December 8th the Washington, DC Economic Partnership (WDCEP) hosted a sold out TEDWomen program featuring Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, who spoke about “feel good” sustainability: eco-design and smart architecture that can simplify life and be green.  Ingels’ architectural alchemy mixes traditional design ingredients in unusual ways; gold is not the result, but there is an added value of symbiosis in his projects.

This program was part of a two day TED event; the first ever TEDWomen event hosted in Washington, DC, and was co-produced by TEDxPotomac Curator Michelle Hoffman and The Danish Embassy.

TEDWomen is part of TEDx, a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At TEDx events, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. TEDWomen continues the great TED tradition of sharing ideas worth spreading while focusing on how women and girls are reshaping the future.
