What makes TEDxBeaconStreet different?

Where TED brings great thinkers together in exclusive conferences and gives the content away as ideas worth spreading, TEDxBeaconStreet/TEDxYouth@BeaconStreet opens up and demystifies the TED experience, creating a new community platform for activating ideas in action.

We believe that ideas get traction only when communities and families are personally involved and ideas are made real and accessible. That is why our speakers and community members host Adventures throughout the year, offering free, unparalleled, behind-the-scenes access to the people, places and ideas that make Greater Boston so dynamic. Our model forces top thinkers in their fields to make their ideas accessible to a non-technical and diverse audience spanning all age groups.
