On Sept. 21 at 4 pm, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship presents its final week of TED Talks on income inequality. This week includes a talk on promoting entrepreneurship and helping people to help themselves, as well as one about apathy and its nonexistence. These talks will be followed by an open discussion. Everyone is encouraged to attend and share thoughts and opinions on the causes and solutions to income inequality.
Dr. Ernesto Sirolli, founder of the Sirolli Institute Enterprise Facilitations, in a 17-minute TED Talk offers his simple solution to helping others. He says the key is to “shut up and listen.” By listening, the first principal of aid is achieved and that is to respect the person you are trying to help. Sirolli’s talk is on a global scale but can be applied locally. The second TED Talk is by a Canadian, Dave Meslin, titled “The antidote to apathy.” He speaks about the manner in which government promotes a lack of interest in issues and he suggests solutions.
The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County is located at 10341 Hwy .42, Ephraim. For more information call 920.854.7559.
