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 event is a Youth event organised by students from Dubai American Academy; it also features student speakers from Dubai American Academy.
We would like to thank Dubai American Academy’s Parent Association, Ms. Robin Appleby (Superintendent of Dubai American Academy) and Mr.Scott Schaffner (High School principal of Dubai American Academy) to help us make this event possible.
