TEDxBeaconStreet partners Communispace and Fresh Tilled Soil hosted an inspiring Adventure of the mind at the Boston Public Library on November 7, 2013 for TEDxBeaconStreet speakers, braintrust, and partners. Adam Melonas, a founder of  Unreal Candy provided inspiration and advice on successful methods for collaboration.

Using Communispace collaboration methods we focused on solutions for 4 of the most pressing issues in Boston and the world – water, food, shelter and education. The goal was to determine solutions that challenge perceptions about how business can be done by introducing collaboration between business and all of those affected by these major issues. This is just the kind of collaboration that sparks Ideas in Action and we’re proud to work with Communispace and Fresh Tilled Soil to explore these important issues.

Special thanks to Richard Banfield, Jen Reddy, Tina Cassidy and Adam Melonas.

Take a look at this great video of a very special event.
