Change is always hard and knowing when to upgrade or redesign systems that support an evolving city, is an important global challenge now. At TEDxNairobi this year, we know that the time for change has come. Our cities need to become stronger in ways, which create bridges across the urban-rural divide, reduce conflict over shared resources and support vulnerable communities across the world.
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 call TEDx Nairobi, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDx Nairobi 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.
