We have planned a year long program of events with the TEDxMonrovia Conference
TEDxMonrovia 2017: The Power of Sustainability is a TEDx Conference and program of activities to celebrate and learn from Liberia’s most inspired thinkers, leaders and change-makers. The aim is to educate and empower Liberians to spread ideas and secure a better tomorrow for the next generation. This year-long program of events involves a unique, interactive TEDx Conference in Monrovia, Liberia’s first ever TEDWomen Salon, TEDxMonroviaLive screenings on LiberianTV public community television and a TEDxMonrovia Youth Learning Tour to deliver the TEDx experience to classrooms.
As global citizens, Liberians share in the responsibility to find sustainable approaches to collective problems- on everything from education to the environment to governance and social development. Liberia is working towards achieving the worldwide Sustainable Development Goals and is adopting unique, local solutions to our development challenges.
What is TEDx?
TED (ted.com) is a nonprofit devoted to spreading great ideas in the form of short, powerful talks. TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. Today, TED covers almost all topics- from science to business to global issues- in more than 100 languages. The world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 10 minutes.
