World-Class Ideas about the State of Humanity Today and Tomorrow **DATE CHANGE** The last day of the course will now be held on June 5.

Brown Bag it to OLLI! Have lunch while you learn. This course deals with current issues, thoughts and ideas, and humanity. It is anchored by video presentations of “TEDtalks” which were originally devoted to the converging fields of technology, entertainment, and design. The content has expanded to include science, business, the arts, and global issues facing our world. TED speakers give amazing performances, perspectives, and analyses about new knowledge and thinking. Each week, a few of the talks will be viewed and discussed. If you are interested in where knowledge is and where it is headed, this course is a must!
