WHY: 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 TEDxYoungCirclePark, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYoungCirclePark event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine 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.
In the spirit of the TED mission of promoting “ideas worth spreading,” TEDx is a program of local, independently organized events that bring people together to share in a TED-experience. At TEDx events, live speakers are combined with TEDTalk videos to spark discussion and connection at a local level.
TEDx Young Circle Park is was formed to curate an event that features speakers from local academia, government, business and community and nonprofit organizations to take a “deeper dive” into issues that impact the South Florida community and resonate nationally and globally.
TEDx Young Circle Park will take place Saturday, December 11, 2021 at the Hollywood Central Performing Arts Center in Hollywood, FL and will feature speakers and TEDTalks that examine:
- Environmental and sustainability issues with a specific focus on innovative ideas for mitigation of sea level rise, coastal sustainability and water management.
- Technology development issues with a specific focus on technology development in South Florida, as well as the development and application of NFT, Blockchain and virtual reality technology.
TEDx Young Circle Park will act as a platform for speakers to voice their ideas and formulate discussion around these ideas. It will also enable recognized speakers to share their ideas and experiences in a public forum in the heart of South Florida. We believe that this event will help stir up ideas and discussion among people in our community and beyond.
TED is an annual event where some of the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are most passionate about.
“TED” stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design — three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping our future. In fact, the event is broader still, showcasing ideas that matter in any discipline. Attendees have called it “the ultimate brain spa” and “a four-day journey into the future.”
The diverse audience of CEOs, scientists, creatives, and philanthropists is almost as extraordinary as the speakers, who have included former President Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, Paul Simon, Sir Richard Branson, Philippe Starck and Bono.
TED was first held in Monterey, California, in 1984. In recent years, TED has expanded to include an international conference, TEDGlobal; media initiatives, including TED Talks and TED.com; and the TEDPrize. Today, more than 1000 talks from past TED conferences are now freely available online at TED.com
In the spirit of Ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, independently organized events that bring people together to share in a TED-like experience. At TEDx events, TEDTalks videos 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.
TEDxYoungCirclePark is in its second year. The group has come together again to help spread awareness and allow our thinkers to have a stage to make a difference and speak out their ideas. This group comes from varying backgrounds and varying age groups with the same goal in mind. We are here to showcase thoughtful Deeper Dive discussions on all aspects of life.
TEDxYoungCirclePark will act as a platform for speakers to voice their ideas and formulate discussion around those ideas. It will also enable recognized speakers to share their ideas and experiences in a public forum in the heart of Downtown Hollywood, FL. We believe that this event will help stir up ideas and discussion among people in our community and BEYOND.
