Welcome to TEDxParklands
The TEDx Platform uses inspired thinkers as drivers of change through sharing ideas. TEDxParklands is an event geared towards growing the TED and TEDx Community in Kenya with a vision to showcase powerful ideas that help to shape the African Narrative.
By driving well rounded conversations, our mission is to give an international platform to visionaries running outstanding initiatives across various sectors under the Nairobi Skyline.
Our 2021 main event theme, ‘The Big Picture’, was geared towards making our audience think about the larger scope. Our speakers motivated viewers with ideas that will hopefully help them see the bigger picture, in life, in their careers, and in their daily undertakings.
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 TEDxParklands, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxParklands event, TED Talks 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, including ours, are self-organized.
Here are a few thoughts we have.
