TEDxGreensboro 2014 Event

The Future, Regardless…

May 8, 2014

TEDxGreensboro is excited to announce our 2014 conference theme: The Future, Regardless… Our theme, suggested by Joe Gecinger, was selected from more than seventy ideas submitted from the community.

“The Future, Regardless…” opens the possibilities of our future. Our May 8, 2014 event will WOW us. We will hear stories of how our idea makers shed stereotypes, share passions, and reveal their visions for our future. In the TED spirit of ídeas worth sharing, TEDxGreensboro wants ideas and stories that are different. The future touches all of us — regardless. As a city and community, we will reimagine the future, regardless of what it holds. If we meet at TEDxGreensboro 2014 in the spirit of celebrating the future, developing emerging technologies, laughing a little, feeling challenged, and, confronting problems and overcoming the barriers among us, we can develop a dream for the future, regardless of what the future brings.

Nominations will open next week. We will seek speakers from broad communities – educators, artists, inventors, scientists, medical professionals, entrepreneurs, and innovators – who can peel back the ordinary layers to discover the heart of a challenge; whose ideas discard stereotypes and go beyond fears; whose history and experience can provide lessons to consider; who may hold a key that unlocks our futures; who are innovators, explorers, and doers; who foster our environment, tap new resources, educate, and inspire us for The Future. Regardless…
