Everyone is on their own individual journey. Journeys can be new beginnings with opportunities for growth and discovery. However, journeys can also be difficult; they often involve overcoming obstacles and they can challenge and redefine beliefs, as well as opening your eyes to new perspectives. Whatever your journey may be – embrace the highs and the lows, and enjoy where you are right now. After all, it’s the journey that matters, not the destination.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxAstonUniversity, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxAstonUniversity event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
