The TEDxSaltLakeCity mission, based on the TED mission, is to cultivate and circulate “Ideas Worth Pollinating”. Our Vision for the future is to make TEDxSaltLakeCity the Wasatch Front’s leading platform for citizens to present and explore their ideas, stories, and creative solutions. We hope to create not only a deeper understanding of the place we call home, but also an ongoing conversation among our people and organizations. Our ultimate goal: to inspire action across our community resulting in an upgraded Salt Lake City that is a model for the world. 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).
