Created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading,” the TEDx program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis.
Imagine Comox Valley put on the first TedX event of the Comox Valley on April 14th, 2010 at Frelones in Cumberland, BC. (You can view images from the event here.)
Since then there have been several more TedX events held in the Comox Valley.
