Seldom do two independent concepts connect as well as Fulbright and TEDx. The Fulbright Scholarship Program nurtures mutual understanding and respect across cultures by the exchange of compassionate, socially aware individuals, serving as ambassadors across all fields of professional engagement. TEDx, similarly, has shown immense promise in furthering ideas for the benefit of all societies in a way that is both personable (revolutionary story-telling) and powerful (demonstrating incredible feats of intellect, creativity, and collaboration). It is our continuing wish to provide Fulbright alumni with a TEDx framework to most effectively excite and gather others to join efforts in working for the sake of humanity's progress.
TEDxFulbrightDublin will compose a full-day program for 100 participants with 16 talks of between 5 and 18 minutes, networking breaks, lunch, facilitated activities and a closing reception. Visionary, dynamic, and succinct talks will be delivered by rising members, established alumni and friends of the Fulbright community based on the TED conference structure. Speakers are composed of researchers, entrepreneurs, academics, designers, musicians, performers, and more. The full program will be announced soon
