TEDxSanJuanIsland 2019

Blockchain. Esports. Dementia. Consent. Magic. Poverty. Finance. Stress. Technology. Love.

Join us for a day of cutting-edge innnovation and insight from 12 remarkable speakers. TEDxSanJuanIsland is a local event inspired by TED’s commitment to “ideas worth spreading.” Our 2019 theme, Origins, invites thought leaders, change makers, and passionate experts to tackle today's big issues by examining who we are, where we came from, and where we are headed.

Now entering its fourth year, TEDxSanJuanIsland is a space in the community for intelligent discussion without a political or religious agenda. We look for stories of innovation, adventure, breakthroughs and inspiration – ideas that topple stigma and advance thinking. Our 2019 Speakers honor the value of diversity of thought and the heritage of our best ideas. We asked them to share these the context of who we are, where we came from, and where we are headed.

TEDxSanJuanIsland strives to create a community where conversations about diverse ideas inspire others to make a difference. We want you to think big and be creative in applying insights from the conference to your daily life. Our goal is for all participants to leave the conference empowered to effect positive change in our community.
