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).

こんにちは! 私たちは三田国際学園に通う高校2年生です。 難民という問題に、学生という小さな力ではありながら、私たちにしかできないことでTEDxに出演しました。 難民のサポートに尽力されているCate Blanchettさんを心から尊敬し、「学生で」初めての朗読劇に挑戦しました。 この問題は身近ではないですが、UNHCRさん主催のWill2Liveに参加したり、難民の方々のお話を聞いたりすることを通して自分ごとに捉えて活動しています。この動画を通して少しでも多くの方が、正しい情報をもとに難民問題を知っていただけると嬉しいです! 知るという貢献、募金や皆様の声という形での貢献があります。ぜひ一緒にサポートしましょう! UNHCR 募金HP Hello, we are second year high school students attending Mita International School. We decided to perform in this TEDx event to address the issue of the situation for refugees. I sincerely respect actress Cate Blanchett, who is devoted to supporting refugees, and I was inspired by her to challenge myself in my first reading drama as a student. It would make me happy if many people could learn about the situation the refugees face based on accurate information through this performance! I also hope this will motivate more people to take action and provide support for the refugees in need of aid. UNHCR Fundraising HP
