How are these stories put to purpose in addressing critical issues within our societies, in assisting with own issues of life process and physical and mental health, in helping to make the connections in our networks to act for social change?

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 = indipendently 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.)
