Friday, October 27, is the last day to buy tickets for this eye-opening experience.
This year's theme is "Anything's Possible," and speakers include researchers, scientists, architects, advocates, and innovators. Tickets begin at $85 for a full day of speakers, including breakfast, lunch, and snacks; or $148 for a ticket that also includes dinner with the speakers. (A $35 student/senior ticket is now sold out.)
Featured speakers include Devin Fidler, a "rethinker of work." Fidler is the Founder of Rethinkery Labs, a research and consulting center focused on better understanding the forces shaping tomorrow’s companies. He has worked with senior leaders at dozens of Fortune 1000 companies to systematically explore emerging issues and technologies, and to analyze their potential impacts.
Also speaking is Emily Angstreich, a Mira Costa High School senior who is working to de-stigmatize mental health issues among youth. She is a member of Mira Costa’s Social and Emotional Wellness Committee, and is the co-founder of Headstrong, a club that works to create a more open environment when talking about mental health on campus.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to "ideas worth spreading." Started as a four-day conference in California in 1984, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. 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 like TEDxManhattanBeach are self-organized.
The lead sponsors of the TEDx Manhattan Beach event are the Manhattan Beach Unified School District, the Manhattan Beach Education Foundation, the City of Manhattan Beach, and Chevron.
