TEDxReno - The Biggest Little Citizen
April 26th, 2013. 8:30-4:30PM
Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, NV

After Party at SoDo from 5-7PM

At TEDxReno we look to embrace the notion that even as the essential building block of the community, the citizen is often lost in the shuffle. However, anyone can transform a community, a country, or even the world with something as “small” as an idea.

Unfortunately, the development of the consumer-based society has uprooted us from the core concepts of what it means to be a citizen. We are not just a product of our surroundings but a crucial facet to its composition, as our living environment is a mirror reflection of how we view ourselves. The ideas and imagination of The Biggest Little Citizen can allow small ideas to become big ideas; consumers to return to their moral and social obligations; and reflection to become a statement, not a result.

Reno is in a transition period from a consumer standpoint, we’ve been known for our mining, and more popularly because of our huge gaming industry. We don’t exactly know what this city’s next niche will be, but the opportune time is now for businesses, events, or experiments to come to make an impact. We don’t have the exact answers but we are more than willing to listen to new ideas to stimulate conversation and instill motivation. TEDx is the best platform to make this happen.
