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 TEDxSaintMichaelsCollege, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSaintMichaelsCollege 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.
It is our belief that at Saint Michael’s College, every person can make a difference in the world. TEDxSaintMichaelsCollege will be just the beginning to recognize the unrecognized, give a platform to those who don’t have one, and begin to inspire students that they can make a difference. Everyone has an idea worth sharing, we just put them on a stage.
