TEDx Localizes Learning A TEDx event brings together local speakers to share their expertise on a variety of topics. These events have some features in common with TED events. First, they follow the TED format of brief, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations, or performances that revolve around a single idea. The talks are meant to be free of commercial, religious, or political agendas and to inspire meaningful conversations. Anyone can plan a TEDx event for their community, school, company, or organization. If you want to do so, first determine the type of event and give it an inviting name. You’ll also need to secure a TEDx license through TED. The next steps include selecting a venue and recruiting a team to help with organizing. Look for speakers who have something of value to share, then promote and present your event. Finally, be sure to photograph and video your speakers so others can learn from their expertise for years to come.
