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 TEDxCocoaBeach, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxCocoaBeach event, TED Talks 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.
Thanks to the efforts of organizer, Bryan Bergeron, TEDxCocoaBeach is scheduled for March 23rd of 2019! The theme of the 2019 event will be “The Value of Shared Experiences”. This is intentionally abstract, and open to interpretation – so that it’s broad enough to leave room for a wide range of topics and speakers. We invite you to get involved, as a volunteer, or by submitting your idea. Keep your eye out for the invitations and applications!
