Anne is going to the TEDx Idea Search

8 Feb 2017

The saying that “There is always something new coming out of Africa” has been quoted by great thinkers such as Aristotle and world leaders, for centuries since it was first stated by the Roman statesman and scholar Pliny, the Elder who lived from 23 to 79 A.D.

TED, being committed to “ideas worth spreading” has therefore come to Africa to find out more, by hosting an ideas search on 8th February in Nairobi. The TED Idea Search 2017, is a chance to find fresh voices to ring out on the TEDGlobal stage. Some of these talks will be posted on the online TED platform; other speakers will be invited to expand on their talks on the TEDGlobal 2017 main stage in Arusha, Tanzania, in the summer of 2017, themed Builders. Truth-tellers. Catalysts. Previous TED Talent searches discovered speakers such as Saki Mafundikwa, Richard Turere, Zak Ebrahim, Sally Kohn, Hyeonseo Lee.

Join us at this unique event. The TED talks will cover new trends in technology, entertainment, and design; as well as education, business and science. Register today for the limited tickets available to the public. All confirmed participants will be notified by 25th Jan. Please note that only confirmed participants will be guaranteed entry.

With support from the Rockefeller Foundation.
