TEDxMogadishu 2014 Talks:


TEDxMogadishu celebrates the power of ideas
to positively change the world.
We aim to build community by bringing together
like-minded people who believe in this mission.


What is TEDx? In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At TEDxMogadishu, live speakers will spark deep discussion and connection. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
