After receiving numerous low marks on various lists of city rankings in the past decade, interesting things have been happening in Modesto. The city, while trying not to take the negative assessments to heart, has begun to make efforts in improving the quality of life, on multiple fronts, of it’s inhabitants.
This focus on improvement is being highlighted in this year’s TEDx event. The theme chosen for 2017 is ‘ideas that elevate.’ It is this perspective, where members of our community have come together to help make our city better, that all of our speakers have in common. Each one will be representing their individual idea for helping others or the self. Modesto is pulling itself up from the bottom, and these are some of those ideas that have helped elevate our community. It is now our turn to spread these good ideas with everyone.
