TEDxVillageGate is being organized by Village Gate Children’s Academy -- an innovative Montessori school for children grades K-7 in Encinitas, north of San Diego. The full-day event will be held on December 8, 2012 in the auditorium of the Seaside Center for Spiritual Life, right next to the school.
The theme of TEDxVillageGate is “Let It Be Me.” Inspired by the school’s mission to educate children as creative thinkers, problem-solvers and contributing community members, “let it be me” is a call to personal and community action. Rather than waiting for an unknown “them” to fix things and create a better world, we must rise to the knowledge that “them” is “me.”
The conference will include four thematic sessions:
● Changing the Face of Education
● Creating Momentum Through Innovation
● Making Connections to Build Community
● Hailing the Heroes of Tomorrow (which will feature youth speakers)
Each session will feature approximately six inspiring speakers, and a healthy lunch will be provided to all attendees.
