In March 2021, TEDxChengdu held its first TEDxKids@Chengdu event that aimed to spark discussion around what makes an “extraordinary player” who is not only a kids’ role model but also dedicated to creating an encouraging environment for kids to explore and grow. 10 speakers and over 500 audience members joined the discussion on the event day.
I was one of the founding team members of TEDxChengdu and volunteered in curation from 2017-2019. Though I am not engaged in organizing events anymore, TEDxChengdu to me has always been a home where I can be nurtured and grow. So I am very glad this year I was able to facilitate this collaboration with QUOGEN studio and see how two innovative groups in different fields could inspire each other and help generate new ideas.
_In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks videos and live speakers combine to spark deep discussions and connections in a small group.
