TEDx talks cover a vast array of topics across a variety of areas. If you’ve identified a unique issue that you are passionate about, the TEDx platform can be a perfect place to share it.

The best TEDx talks are original, unique, and engaging. Ideas that resonate for you are likely to do the same for others. If you know someone who belongs on the TEDx stage, or if you belong there yourself, we want to hear from you!

To be considered, your “Idea Worth Spreading” should be:

  1. New

  2. Interesting

  3. Evidence-Based and Realistic

  4. Accompanied with a depth of knowledge, experience, or research

  5. Compelling, authentic, and engaging in communicating the idea/message

If this sounds like you, we want to hear more!
