A Catalyst For Spreading Ideas Worth Doing

TEDxSanDiego brings together a collection of doers and thinkers, innovators and creatives, explorers and visionaries, teachers and learners, then seeks to illuminate, inspire and activate those individuals as a way to expand horizons, change perceptions, incite action and foster new connections.

After years of spreading ideas worth sharing, inspired by the global challenges that impact us all, we are shifting the focus of TEDxSanDiego towards action. Our response to the demands of this coming decade is to activate and connect inspired people with activities, opportunities and communities that support positive, impactful action.

About TEDxSD
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
