Welcome to the TEDActive 2012 Projects! We’re incredibly excited to launch these brainstorms (driven by all of you!) and let the ideas start flowing before we even show up in Palm Springs. Today, we’re kicking off online discussions that will help you find other amazing people and spark the first conversations on Facebook. Check out all the questions and join the TEDActive Project Groups that intrigue you most.
Six Projects harness the huge energy and optimism of our community to dream up answers to big questions. Our incredible diversity of cultures, backgrounds and talents all come together to discover new ideas.
What’s new for 2012:
This year, we’ve reinvented the Project format. We know there are many ways to answer a question or solve a problem — so we’re capturing the story of each idea and sharing them in blogs, video and more so that our collective thinking can help these ideas grow. Join all the Projects, just a few, or follow one from start to finish.
