This year's TEDxBaruunUrt is dedicated to providing inspiration and motivation to people wishing they could do more with their lives. Chock full of interesting speakers and fantastic performers, this year's TEDxBaruunUrt event aims to show attendees that you don't have to be a "special" person to be able to accomplish something remarkable. Instead, all you need is a great idea worth spreading! Slated to be held at the spacious Baruun-Urt movie theater, TEDxBaruunUrt is intended to serve as an eye-opening experience for people of all ages, occupations and life circumstances. Tickets for TEDxBaruunUrt are priced at only 3,000₮ (the equivalent of $1.50), with all profits generated from ticket sells funneled back into providing as great a TEDx experience as possible. This year's TEDx event is the first of its kind to be held in Baruun-Urt, meaning that the potential exists for TEDx to become a staple of the extra-curricular and intellectual life of what is a truly wonderful city. Co-produced by local Mongolians and foreign volunteer workers, TEDxBaruunUrt promises to give attendees the chance to see things, hear things and meet people they may have otherwise never had the chance to encounter. In maintaining the TED ideal of promoting great ideas worth spreading, we are proud to feature TEDxBaruunUrt as the beginning of what will hopefully be many conversation-sparking events to come.
