TEDxMogadishu 2014 Theme: Mogadishu Rising

2012 saw the rebirth of Mogadishu amidst a fragile peace for the first time in 23 years. In 2013, we reflected on the past, present and future, and rediscovered Somalia. In 2014 we will highlight the bold innovation, creative ideas and fearless individuals that are bringing Mogadishu back onto the world stage. Somalis are returning home, construction is booming, and new businesses are lining the busy streets.

Join us as we celebrate #MogadishuRising.


Watch the TEDxMogadishu 2013 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.
