Have your students ever had an idea that they thought could change the world? Did they ever shelf that idea, thinking that they couldn’t really make a difference?
Hosting a TEDx event is like feeding into the biggest most powerful factory of idea makers and action takers. By hosting an event you facilitate the most inspiring conversation of your life. You enable and inspire others around you and you become a change agent. Here you will receive the information and resources in order to set-up a successful TEDx Event in your community.

Before I approve your proposal, I need to know if ED-ucation Publishing is a for profit company.
We had a feeling this might come up as we had seen other posts similar to this. In hindsight, it may have been easier to sign up as individuals. ED-ucation Publishing is simply a collaborative name and space for Tosca and I to share resources with teachers around the globe. It gives us more credibility when creating free resources as educators, such as TED-ucation books, but we are not incorporated and are not for profit.
I hope this answers your questions. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us.
Okay, both sessions accepted.
