Brewing big ideas at a local level

Local ideas are worth spreading as evidenced by the work of TEDx Windhoek, and organisation that will in March host the inaugural local TEDx event under the theme “Unleashing Potential” in Windhoek. According to Alisa Amupolo, convener of the event, the inaugural event seeks to inspire a new generation of thinkers engaging responsibly with Namibia and with the world. TEDx Windhoek is a programme of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a ‘TED-like’ experience where live speakers and video talks play a pivotal role in sparking deep discussions and connections in a small group. The TEDx Windhoek event is operated under license from TED, a non-profit organization devoted to ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’ which started as a four-day conference in California almost 30 years ago.
