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 TEDxGrandRapids, where x = independently organized TED event. The goal of TEDxGrandRapids is to be a catalyst for change – bringing thinkers and doers in the GrandRapids community together to have meaningful conversations that lead to positive change.
