“The Power of Good” at TEDxJCU
April 16 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
We are building a movement of humanity-driven action, inspiring those who ask the questions that challenge us to be and do good.
Nothing unites and uplifts humanity more than the power of good. Our legacy lies in our ability to leverage this power in our decision-making and actions.
John Carroll University students chose our theme to inspire people toward other-focused generosity and empathy instead of intermittently doing good between our busy moments.
On April 16th, we will welcome a group of extraordinary individuals to deliver the talk of their lives and help us activate “The Power of Good” so we can be men and women for and with others as we go forth and set the world on fire.

Compared to the “big” TED conference, where regular 5-day admission starts at $10,000 (yes, really!), we think TEDxJCU is a great, locally-produced value.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
