What’s our team up to these days? We’re producing a TEDx event for local high school students.

This event is free for students to attend so we’re looking for partners to support our efforts.

Let us know if you would like to become our partner.

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 TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] 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. “This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.”

TEDxSanDiego is a catalyst for spreading ideas that change our world
