In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxWVU, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxWVU event, live speakers will be speaking to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx Program , but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
