Tyler is the grassroots coordinator for Project: AK-47, an organization that rescues and rehabilitates child soldiers. He is a student in his last semester here at Belmont, a husband and a soon-to-be father. He's here today to talk to us about how to build a bridge between western society and the needs of the world. What is TEDx? 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 TEDx Youth Greater Nashville, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYouth Greater Nashville 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.
