In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSugarLand, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSugarLand event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

TEDxSugarLand helps spread big ideas and elevate inspired citizenship in Texas. It is a community of thinkers and doers, ideators and creators, activists and enthusiasts. TEDxSugarLand showcases innovative individuals, no matter the sector, who each give the ‘talk of their life’ around a powerful idea. This diverse group of thought leaders and innovators educate, inspire, and stimulate change with the ultimate goal being deep discussion and action across our communities. TEDxSugarLand is made possible by the work and effort of the broader community: inspiring attendees, a large, committed volunteer team, deeply involved partners and sponsors, and a wealth of brilliant innovators in Texas who donate their time, energy, and talents to contribute to “Ideas Worth Spreading.”
