TEDxManhattanBeach is pleased to announce our fifth monthly social.


Wednesday August 25, 2010.


6:00 p.m. Registration and networking – we will be providing beer, wine and a light dinner.

7:00 to 8:00 p.m. Recorded TED Talks on the theme of Community Design.

8:00 to 9:00 p.m. Discussion, networking and more beer and wine (if any is left).

Community Design

Community Design will explore the ideas that link architecture, zoning and street lay out decisions with community interactions and happy people. Why do we choose to go some places just to enjoy the location and why do we avoid other places. How major roads prevent or impede walkers and cyclists.

Community Design incorporates some of the theme ideas from the brain storming session at the TEDxManhattanBeach Social on August 4, 2010. Specifically the idea about Community Design is how our design decisions impact transportation, education, slow food, obesity, families, isolation, community and lots more. We hope that the conversation will help us all create a better community for us to all enjoy living in.


The event is free to attend. We will be asking, at the door, for a $10 / person contribution towards the cost of the beer, wine and food that we will be providing.

The courtyard at the hotel is outside and has a capacity for only 50 people.


The event will be held at the Hawthorn Suites, 1817 North Sepulveda Boulevard, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266.

Parking and Transportation

Please park across the street as the hotel is expected to be full and the guests have priority for parking.

If you can carpool, bike or walk to the event everyone will benefit 🙂
