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?

    I look forward to meeting you in Doha. Perhaps you could have your students create a compilation video of their 'ideas worth spreading' to share with others of us who are also educators ... perhaps all of us could do the same. It's inspiring to hear young peoples' ideas on what the world: business, education, family, government, nature will and should look like in the future. I would love to do a collaborative project with your students if you have the time and energy to help put it together. I teach in Taiwan - we could introduce our students and put them to work exploring the patterns and passions of their lives on opposite sides of the planet ... they may even be able to send us both to TEDxSummit with more inspiration.

    My Best,
