What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxYouth@WestlandRow, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYouth@WestlandRow event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
TEDxYouth@WestlandRow is organised by a group of young adults led by Alan Rice, and coming from a range of backgrounds, including science, business, computer science and politics. You can get in contact by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
