All over the world, people are coming together for TEDx talks given by exceptional individuals who have ideas or experiences that can affect change.

This year’s TEDx ECUAD theme is “Equilibrium” which focuses on “balance, inner peace and the dynamics of opposing forces coming together”.

“In this polarizing time, it is imperative that we talk about how people can work together to bring about a more stable future”. -TEDxECUAD

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 TEDxECUAD, where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDxECUAD 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 are self-organized.
