For those curious folks interested in a deeper and broader exploration of science, technology, culture, and our changing world, UU Casper hosts “Lunch With TED” the last Sunday of each month at noon. Bring a sack lunch to eat while we watch a TED Talk video and participate in a facilitated discussion.  This month we’ll view “Poverty Isn’t a Lack of Character, it’s a Lack of Cash,” by Rutger Bregman.

“”Ideas can and do change the world,” says historian Rutger Bregman, sharing his case for a provocative one: guaranteed basic income. Learn more about the idea’s 500-year history and a forgotten modern experiment where it actually worked — and imagine how much energy and talent we would unleash if we got rid of poverty once and for all.” (

Everyone is welcome!

TED is a nonprofit organization begun in 1984 and is devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. The project began as a type of conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today, TED Talks cover a wide and interesting range of topics — from science to business to humanity relations.
