TED Circles is an open platform of small groups that engage in conversations about ideas.

Circles can take place 100% virtually so they are helping communities stay connected, especially now. Hosted by volunteers, Circles watch and discuss a TED Talk. They share takeaways online to consider each other’s perspectives and create a global conversation. That conversation needs everyone so we hope you will register to host or sign up to attend.
