Happening Today: TEDxReykjavík at Austurbær

This independently organized TED Talk centres on the theme “local ideas on a global stage.” A series of speakers—including a comedian, cinematographer, cardiothoracic surgeon, trans and queer activist, and the first Icelandic explorer to ski solo from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole—will give short talks exploring subjects related to the event’s central theme. The speakers will initiate discussion with audience members, exploring how ideas developed in our local environments can assist other populations throughout the world. If you’re looking for inspiration of any sort, this is the place to be!
