Building a 7-generation world | Susan Bosak | TEDxStouffville

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Susan Bosak takes a look at the big picture of how communities thrive. She will inspire you to think about how you interact with your family, your neighbors, and your environment and how to leave a legacy for generations to come.

Susan Bosak co-founded the Legacy Project, an international research, education, and social innovation group dedicated to inspired lives, stronger communities, and a more sustainable world.

She works with children, adults, and elders across the US and Canada. With an eye to the big picture, her research work brings together human development, communication, literacy, intergenerational, aging, life course, psychosocial dynamics, community building, science and the environment. Featured in publications from The Toronto Star to The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal, her work emphasizes strategic generational collaborations for profound social change.

The author of several books, including Dream and A Little Something, her work has received many honors, including Parents’ Choice, Teachers’ Choice, Children’s Choice, two Benjamin Franklin Awards, and a Visionary Award.

She enjoys collecting optical illusions because “nothing is ever as it seems.” One of her most rewarding roles is as caregiver for her mother, who has severe dementia and is her Time Teacher. She lives in the country surrounded by trees that carry timeless stories, more books than fit on her shelves, and an ever-expanding list of questions.
