In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).

Susan Mercer, Hitoshi Tojo

Becoming No Kill has become an expressed goal for Japan as a nation. In 2006, Susan Mercer and Hitoshi Tojo created NPO HEART Tokushima and they, along with staff and volunteers, have been working since to create an environment locally that is free from suffering and abuse for dogs and cats. In an area that once had the worst rate in the nation for gassing unwanted animals, Susan and Hitoshi have worked together with the local authorities to greatly improve the situation for animals. HEART Tokushima was also one of the rescue organizations that played a major role in caring for animals displaced by the Great East Japan Earthquake.
