Independent TEDx Event in South Florida Seeks Speakers on Environment, Education and Technology
TEDx Young Circle Park has issued a call for speakers for the independently organized TED event which is slated for November 2019 in South Florida. In the spirit of the TED and TEDx mission, the event will feature “ideas worth spreading” on topics relative to the environment, education, economy and technology.
The TED format has become widely popular for sharing “short, powerful talks” online; talks that are known for both their depth and brevity, usually running no more than 15 minutes. TED talks have reached more than 500 million people on YouTube and Ted.com and through TED and TEDx conferences.
The TEDx Young Circle Park event will take place Saturday, November 9, 2019 at Young Circle ArtsPark in historic downtown Hollywood, FL. Prospective speakers can express interest in presenting and submit proposals via www.tedxyoungcirclepark.com. The deadline for speaker submissions is August 15, 2019.
TEDx Young Circle Park is seeking six to nine local speakers who want to offer engaging and thought-provoking content. The local organizing committee will provide speakers with guidance, training and support in preparing their presentations. All presentations will be captured by a professional video team for sharing and promotion on social media and YouTube. Select presentations may also be featured on Ted.com.
The organizing committee is specifically interested in curating an event that features speakers from local academia, government, business and nonprofit organizations on topics that provide a “deeper dive” into:
Environmental and sustainability issues with a specific interest in sea level rise, coastal sustainability
and water management.
Health and education issues with a specific interest in how environment impacts health, how tech impacts health and healthcare education.
Technology development issues with a specific interest in technology at the intersection of environmental, education and health issues, as well as virtual reality and venture capital.
