TED is a nonprofit organisation devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world. TEDxJESS is a local gathering where educational TED-like talks are shared with the audience. The event aims to foster learning, inspire and provoke conversations that matter. The theme of this event will be ‘Space’.
Some of the speakers taking to the stage on the night include Omran Sharaf, the Emirates Mars Mission Project Manager at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre; James Duthie, a conservation activist who’s worked with the WWF and The Jane Goodall Institute and Vahid Fotuhi, Sustainability Pioneer, Chief Camper at FAKC.ME - a non-profit group focused on introducing children to the joys of the great outdoors.
