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 TEDxPortlandStateUniversity, where x=independently organized TED event.

Our sold-out 2019 TEDxPortlandStateUniversity event celebrated our speakers’ ideas of how we can continue to move forward in today’s society, and was a completely student-led event. We are excited to prepare for our next inspiring wave of speakers at our 2020 TEDxPortlandStateUniversity taking place on Saturday, October 10th, 2020. Speakers will take the stage to share their idea worth spreading, with reflection upon and incorporation of our 2020 theme “Our Time Is Now”.

Our deadline for speaker applications/nominations has been extended to Friday, January 31st, 2020. If you would like to speak at our 2020 event, please click here. If you would like to nominate someone else, please click here.
