What talks will be on the program?
In December, TEDxOrlandoSalon attendees will vote to view two talks from the following curated selection:
||We can now edit our DNA, let's do it wisely|
||A boat carrying 500 refugees sunk at sea: the story of two survivors
|Genevieve von Petzinger:
||Why are these 32 symbols found in caves all over Europe?|
||The secret sneaker market and why it matters|
||What are animals thinking and feeling?|
What are the monthly meetings like?
TEDxOrlandoSalon events are held at Valencia College locations.
A typical meeting draws approximately 50 smart, interesting, engaged people. Some will be regulars and some will be newcomers.
Two TEDTalk videos are shown, each followed by a discussion break. The event program is determined by vote, and discussions are open-ended.
Please bring food and drink, if you wish to.
Please note that Salon events do not feature live speakers; the focus is on participation in conversation and discussion.
TEDxOrlando Code of Conduct
TEDxOrlando and TEDxOrlandoSalon are about the exchange of meaningful ideas and deep discussion, not selling. Opportunities do sometimes result from contacts made at our meetings and we encourage that. However, we ask that you refrain from using TEDxOrlando or TEDxOrlandoSalon primarily as a platform for promoting yourself, your personal political or religious views, your business, or your organization.
