This event occurred on

8:00am - 5:00pm (UTC +0hrs)
Livermore, CA
United States

TEDxLivermore was designed to generate ideas and spark dialogue among innovators and educators about how both groups can work together to "Create a Future" that will make a difference for our youth and for our world! We have all heard many times that “it takes a village to raise a child!” I would like to add that “it takes a village to organize a TEDx event! DREAMS We started with a few dreamers and enthusiasts and as the idea matured, we gathered other people who shared the dream and contributed in essential ways to shaping it and bringing it to fruition! IDEAS & THEMES We started with an idea and it evolved into a theme which was transformed into our slate of outstanding speakers and our program! BELIEF, DEDICATION, & HARD WORK We started with only our amazingly dedicated team and the firm conviction that we could make this happen. With hard work and outreach we were able to attract the sponsors we needed to make this day a big success! DREAM BIG & BELIEVE IN YOUR DREAMS! SOME DAY THEY WILL BECOME A REALITY!!
