Learning is not just about knowledge, it’s about identity. What we learn and how we learn it helps shape who we become. From the classroom to the boardroom, from the technologies that direct the spread of ideas, to the trailblazers that forge new routes to understanding and inspiration, join us as we celebrate and explore the nature of learning.

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 TEDxEvanston, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxEvanston event, TEDTalks 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.
