IDEAS TO ACTION – Spring 2020

In 2020, our theme, “Ideas to Action” emphasizes not just ideas but outcomes. We will also celebrate our 10-year anniversary of TEDxSanDiego. Our goal is to bring San Diegans together as a community in powerful intimate venues with extraordinary speakers and activations that inspire us all to go out and make change happen.

Our only formal position is that change starts with us, and ideas are the seeds of positive change.  With over a billion views per year (and growing), TEDx is becoming a voice for people all over the world. The community is growing as are the initiatives at TED. From a conference to a global community, the focus of TED programs and initiatives today is on Impact.

Our theme for our event in late spring 2020 is “Ideas to Action.”  We are driven to share the amazing outcomes of taking a big, perhaps overwhelming or otherwise “crazy” idea and turning it into action.

Please share your contact information if you haven’t already.  Join our team if you want to be part of an extraordinary community and have time to share, or let us know if you want to partner with us.
