Join Us For an Interactive Workshop
on Saturday, July 12th

We at TEDxAmericasFinestCity are proud to call San Diego home! Our love for our community is what prompted us to create this year’s exciting, new event series, Transformation Through Us, which kicks off with our innovative brainstorming event on July 12th.
 By showcasing all the incredible contributions being made within our community, we aim to inspire by example and communicate the ability to spark change as a collective—carried throughout each level of consciousness—individual, communal and global. By creating an environment where people feel comfortable expressing their ideas and encouraging those around them to do the same, our hope is that the opportunity to create change on a global basis will become reality. Our event will be an embodiment of this very concept, demonstrating the power of a single, collectively built idea, because change starts with us.

Through the platform of our first event, we will introduce you to three compelling speakers—each will present on creating transformation and engagement through three essential areas: globally, organizationally and communally. Directly following the presentations, guests will have the unique opportunity to participate in an innovative crowdsourcing experience, through which we will address the question of how to better create a more transformative TEDx event. Participants will directly influence activities to be held at our main fall event. Learn more about this think-tank style exercise here.

About 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 TEDxAFC, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxAFC 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.
