THEME: Driving Forces What is it that gets your pulse beating faster? Social injustice, climate change, fear of the unknown, or is it a beautifully designed chair, technology, a new discovery or an encounter with an inspirational person? The speakers of the third edition of TEDxMarrakesh investigate many of these issues. Some will leave questions hanging and others may have some answers, none will be boring. Join us on this day of revelation!
ABOUT TEDx: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
