Moving Beyond a Hamburger Default World | Ilana Braverman | TEDxCherryCreek
Drive Your Life – Empower Your Life | ANIL KUMAR GUPTA | TEDxPariChowk
The default option isn’t just one choice among many–it’s the choice we make without even thinking about it. We’ve become accustomed to a world where eating animal products is the default choice, which has devastating consequences for climate change. But what happens when we shift our default to plant-based eating? In this inspiring talk, Ilana Braverman shows us the power we have to change our social norms to ensure a sustainable, resilient future for generations to come, with food choices that satisfy everyone. Yes, everyone. Ilana is the Director of Outreach for Better Food Foundation where she’s focused on the nexus of climate change and food choices.
Ilana leads the DefaultVeg campaign, where she consults with leading universities, businesses, and conferences on how to use behavioral nudges to help them reimagine the way they serve food.
Previous to her current role she worked for the Jewish animal advocacy organization, Shamayim.
Ilana holds a Master’s degree in Animals and Public Policy from the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University and a Bachelor’s degree in Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences, with a focus in Human Dimensions from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
