TEDxGeorgetown 2020 Conference
TEDxGeorgetown is holding its first-ever virtual conference on the 14th of November. This year’s conference is themed: Ripples-It Starts with a Drop will have speakers exploring the way a single drop of action in an otherwise still sea can create ripples seen remarkably far away from the source. The event will be highlighting brilliant stories from community activists, leaders, world-renowned scientists, and Georgetown students.
TED is an annual event that brings together the world’s leading thinkers and doers to share ideas that matter in any discipline — technology, entertainment, design, science, humanities, business, development. The talks at the conference, called TED Talks, are then made available to watch for free on TED.com.
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. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. TEDx is a new program that enables local communities such as universities, businesses, libraries, neighborhoods, or just groups of friends to organize, design, and host their own independent, TED-like events.
Now in its ninth year, TEDxGeorgetown has grown to a featured campus event and provides very meaningful experiences for our community and city. TEDxGeorgetown is supported by Jack DeGioia in the Georgetown University Presidents Office.
Join us as we share-worthy ideas!
