TEDxJohannesburg is a community of curious, open-minded people who care deeply about celebrating local ideas, and sharing them with the world. Everyday we look for (and find) remarkable people doing great work. We give them a platform, and amplify their ideas on the world wide web. Their ideas, delivered at our sought-after events, and distributed via video on the web, inspire innovation, thought leadership and visionary insight. This, we believe, is how you change the world.
TEDxJohannesburg events are organised by a dedicated team of highly skilled volunteers. Most are professionals, others are students, and a few represent their companies. They do this work not for political reasons, monetary reward or personal gain. They do it because they truly believe in the power of ideas to change the world. TEDxJohannesburg is partnering with Global Citizen because the two organisations see the world the same way, and want to remake it the same way.
