How will TEDx change the world?

Over 650 TEDx organizers have traveled to Doha, Qatar for the first ever TEDxSummit taking place this week, April 16-20. I am one of them.

Have you attended a TEDx? Are you curious about bringing the TED philosophy alive in your community? How would you participate? What ideas would you bring to the table among TEDx organizers over the next week?

Why does TEDx matter?

    Apr 19 2012: we just finished the first meeting with the student organizers at TEDxLAU in Lebanon, and this was our final activity!

    Wish i could show you the poster! but some of the comments were:
    "Geeks of the world unite",
    "inspire thoughts and ideas",
    "pause, reflect, and reconsider",
    "motivation: urging people to make a move",
    "defying challenges",
    "by not talking about change but paving the way for it",
    "the lack of inspiration is a major source of human misbehavior; the abundance of inspiration is the source of progress. TEDx is the future.",
    "TEDx is about making outstanding ideas reachable. It's about making people understand that anyone can be heard.",

    and we also had a student who chose this quote by Eric Hoffer: “In a world of change, the learners shall inherit the earth, while the learned shall find themselves perfectly suited for a world that no longer exists.”

    Thanks a lot for this discussion topic! We all loved it!

    From Beirut, TEDxLAU :)
