Theme of this Event
What does it mean to be human? What aspects of ourselves actually make us human? What does it mean to live, as opposed to survive? What are we capable of? How can we use this information to better understand who we are?
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 TEDxUMD, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUMD 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.
