      Theme: “What’s Possible” - Seemingly intractable problems. Surprisingly ingenious solutions. In a world full of inequality, conflict, and hardships, there are remarkable examples of what actually can be done. What innovations are possible that can help create a world that we want to live in? The theme of the first TEDxPeacePlaza event on November 9, 2013, is “What’s Possible” — which can be interpreted as both a bold statement and an inviting question. ~ Glenn Fajardo, co-curator, TEDxPeacePlaza

      About TEDx, x = independently organized event
      In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. 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 = independently 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.)
