What would you do in the next 60 days the get the most of the TEDxSummit in Doha?

I am high school Ethics teacher and TEDxYouth organizer lucky enough to be accepted to the TEDxSummit in Doha this April. I am wondering: a) How best to prepare for this opportunity of a lifetime? b) How can I make this something that will impact and inspire my students?

    Feb 13 2012: I'll say come with an open mind and willingness to explore. You might just learn more from other TEDx organizers when they converge in Qatar for one week. It won't just be a cross-disciplinary congregation of people, but also cross-cultural.

    For many, it'll be a first time in the Middle East (even when the media can paint a different picture of the region).

    I guarantee that you'll be in for a worthwhile experience - I've lived in Dubai since birth and now I'm in Doha for the past 6 years.
