TEDx Provincetown: HyperLocal seeks to highlight innovation in local food systems, energy solutions, waste management, government, non-profits, education, art, film, and more! The global pandemic and civil unrest are among the factors that have led to a wider awareness of the fragility of supply chains and other systems critical to civilization as we currently know it. As globalization and some of the issues that come with it accelerate, how can we look inward to our own communities for unique, sustainable solutions?
