“We live in an era where the best way to make a dent on the world may no longer be to write a letter to the editor or publish a book. It may be simply to stand up and say something . . . because both the words and the passion with which they are delivered can now spread across the world at warp speed.”
— Chris Anderson

My TEDxDarwin Journey
“My simple message about creating child safe communities is being shared across Australia and the world – this is the power of TEDx.” – Lesley Taylor, TEDxDarwin 2012
Recently we shared Lesley Taylor’s TEDxDarwin Journey. Lesley’s talk has taken her to the USA and is used in Universities overseas and at our own Charles Darwin University. Lesley was also singled out by airport security – for the right reason! You can read more about her journey here and you can watch Lesley’s talk here.
Share a TED Talk on the day
At TEDxDarwin 2016 we will be playing some amazing TED Talks as part of our program. We are interested to learn what amazing TED Talks you think we should share with the TEDxDarwin Community.
There are over a 1,000 TED Talks (and many times more TEDx Talks). Often we discover surprising and inspiring talks in the strangest places. We are looking for TED Talks that may not have the same profile as the most popular talks. Try to look beyond the top 20.
We are looking forward to your suggestions. Suggest your TED Talk now.
