In its eighth year, TEDGlobal celebrates human ingenuity by exploring ideas, innovation and creativity from around the world. It is the first time the conference has headed south of the equator in search of fresh thinking from emerging geographies – and it is the first time Park City has joined the conversation.
TEDGlobal 2014 South! focuses on the Global South’s rise in influence and power, plus relevant stories from the rest of the world served in bite-sized, yet in-depth, presentations: three- to 18-minute talks, music and performance. On tap for the Rio conference are filmmakers, astronomers, researchers, activists, artists, environmentalists, scientists… experts on the cutting edge of their fields. In between webcasts of these world-renowned speakers and performers, Eccles Center audience members will have pause to engage in discussion about the issues ranging from “Urban Canvas” to “Empowering Tech” to “Basic Needs.”

What is 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 TEDxWomen, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxWomen 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, including ours, are self-organized.
