TEDx Nairobi which is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TED stands for technology, entertainment and design—three broad disciplines that are collectively shaping our future. The event is broader still, showcasing brilliant ideas that matter from any discipline during more than fifty presentations and several morning and evening events. The intense, immersive environment allows attendees and speakers from vastly different fields to draw inspiration from unlikely places and cross-fertilize their ideas. Unexpected connections. Extraordinary insights. Potent inspiration. That is the practical magic TED generates when a thousand of the world’s most remarkable people gather.
8th August last year was the inaugural TEDx Nairobi event which brought together various Kenyans who have made an impact in society in their own unique way.
At the TEDx Nairobi event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
This year’s theme is ‘ The Green City in the Sun’. The list of speakers are:- Jon Bøhmer, Laila Macharia, Su Kahumbu-Stephanou and Myself.
