TEDxEdina

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. 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 on a local level. Our event is called TEDxEdina, where x = independently organized TED event.

All TEDxEdina speakers and organizers are volunteers, passionate about the power of ideas to make our community–and our world–a better place.

Edina High School Model UN

During this all-day educational experience, students will represent a country and learn about international relations and diplomacy. The experience allows students to practice public speaking, negotiation, and conflict resolution. This event is a great way to learn more about the world, especially for any student thinking about majoring in political science, global studies, or communications in college.
