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).

A terminat liceul de coregrafie din Cluj, iar acum este profesoara de dans la liceul de arte „Tudor Jarda”.

Carmen Ion

Carmen Ion has been teaching Romanian language and literature at a high school in Focsani for many years and has never forgotten what being a teacher actually means. One day she came up with a clever new way to make her students read: making trailers for the books they read. And it worked, her project was very well received by the students in her class, then by the students in her school, and now by students from both Romania and the neighboring Republic of Moldova. The project has grown by the year and became a big educational event named Boovie Festival - a competition of book trailers made by students. About 100 students attended the first edition, and their number is ten times bigger this year – more than 1,000 students (100 teams) from 25 counties and two countries, Romania and Moldova.

Elizabeth Sagan

Her aim is to instill the love for stories in others, as she relies on the need for storytelling that exists in everyone.
