TEDxEuston celebrates the diversity, vibrancy and potential of Africa as it reflects the ideas, and inspired thinking of those who are committed to engaging meaningfully with the continent and its diaspora. TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “Ideas Worth Spreading”, where x = independently organised TED event. The program is designed to give communities, organisations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at a local level. TEDxEuston was one of the first TEDx events in 2009, and is the only TEDx outside of Africa that celebrates the diverse nature of the continent and its diaspora. TEDxEuston is organised by a global team of volunteers based in the UK, Nigeria, Ghana, Germany, USA and India.
