Our theme for this year’s event is “Future.” What do you visualize when you think of the future? You may think of scientific and technological marvels, or you may think of the high hopes you hold for your children. You may even think of everyone who came before you, supporting you on your journey to your own future. “Future” means something different to each of us, and we can learn so much about each other as we consider the future together. At TEDxEmeraldGlenPark, we will explore the meaning of “future” from diverse perspectives. We are looking to bring leaders and community members together in an exciting, inspiring forum.
What is TED?
TED is an annual event where some of the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are most passionate about.
“TED” stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design — three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping our future. And in fact, the event is broader still, showcasing ideas that matter in any discipline.
TED is a global foundation devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Attendees have called it “the ultimate brain spa” and “a four-day journey into the future.” The diverse audience — CEOs, scientists, creatives, philanthropists — is almost as extraordinary as the speakers, who have included Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Sir Richard.
What is TEDx?
TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, Ideas Worth Spreading. The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level.
At TEDx events, a screening of TEDTalks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TEDTalks videos – spark deep conversation and connections. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis.
