Designing with humanity | TED Circles July 2020

TED Circles is an open platform of small groups that engage in conversations about ideas.
Hosted by volunteers, Circles watch and discuss a TED Talk and then share takeaways online to consider each other’s perspectives and create a global conversation. That conversation needs everyone so we hope you'll join as a host (registration below) and/or guest (monthly sign-ups below).
Circles can take place 100% virtually so they are helping communities stay connected, especially now. And in addition to monthly themes, there is special programming each month about what’s going on in the world so Circles’ discussions are as meaningful and relevant as possible.
