Sonoma County Winegrowers’ Karissa Kruse to Speak at TEDxSonomaCounty

Simply defined, emergence is order arising from chaos. As TEDxSonomaCounty reflects on how our community has changed over the past year, and we cultivate the seeds of new beginnings, we bring you TEDxSonomaCounty 2022: Emergence!

Examples of emergent behavior exist in things we observe around us: birds flocking, ants colonizing, fish schooling, individuals self-organizing into neighborhoods in cities, our changing global climate, or the development of a collective consciousness about inclusion and individual rights.

We are living through a time of great social, health, and ecological instability, where the forces of creation and chaos are evident. Ahead of us lies uncertainty; and yet, also a great deal of hope for the possibility of what is to come.

Possibility grounded in radical renewal, emerging through our shared values of reverence for nature, interconnectedness, stewardship, compassion, and service. Our desire for restoration applies not only to our environment but to our fractured human systems. It relies on the power of belonging and how an embodied knowledge of place enables us to create community more fully.

Emergence creates a set of conditions where we embrace change and a chance to see what comes next. The grand challenge is to develop an emergence-based framework for approaching major societal issues – a strategy to inform policies and to design experiments to solve major problems that we face as a society.

Join us on Saturday, January 29, 2022 at our 10th annual TEDxSonomaCounty to experience Emergence: to hear big ideas in technology, entertainment, and design and to participate in our TEDx community. Be inspired by thought-provoking speakers who share concepts that are larger than ourselves and help reframe our vision of what is possible.

Speaker Spotlight: Karissa Kruse
• Drink the Good Stuff
President of the Sonoma County Winegrowers talks about getting all too comfortable with disasters, rebuilding and boldly leading. These are the lessons that have guided her personally and our wine and ag community as we “emerge” from wildfires, droughts and a global pandemic while still leading in sustainability and climate.
