COVID-19 Update: All events for the Fall 2021 semester will remain online.
TEDx brings the spirit of TED’s mission of ideas worth spreading to local communities around the globe. TEDx events are organized by curious individuals who seek to discover ideas and spark conversations in their own community. TEDx events include live speakers and recorded TED Talks, and are organized independently under a license granted by TED
We’re all on a journey moving forward towards the future and always in search of the right way. Our lives are full of lessons and inescapable change, and our world keeps evolving in ways we may not always anticipate. As we are preparing for yet another change, we asked ourselves, how do we move forward from here? What have we learned and what do we still need to learn? Our theme and the diverse backgrounds of our speakers will inspire talks that help Illuminate the way forward and open our eyes to the possibilities of where we need to be.
