Before Christmas, we announced that our students are launching a TEDxGriffithCollege.
So, what is TEDx?
TEDx is part of the overall TED 'ideas worth spreading' movement but is independently organised at a local level. There have been 50 TEDx events in Dublin alone since 2009!
Here are some stats from the worldwide TEDx events:
- Over 13,000 events have happened around the world
- 3,174 cities around the world have hosted one or more TEDx events
- 173 countries have hosted one or more TEDx events
- TEDx talks have been viewed over 500 million times on YouTube
As avid watchers of TED talks, we're delighted to be hosting a TEDx event this March (the 31st to be precise). The theme of TEDxGriffithCollege is 'Beyond (Your) Fear', which is a topic a lot of people could relate to.
There will be a limited number of tickets on sale at the start of March.
In the meantime, if you would like to get in touch with the TEDxGriffithCollege team, you can find them here:
