TEDxLusaka 2019


'Sticks in a bundle are unbreakable.'

'A family is like a forest, when you are outside it is dense, when you are inside you see that each tree has its place.'

There are many proverbs about unity and togetherness in Africa. As nations, we have our struggles; as Zambians we have our individual challenges. We also have the tools, ideas, innovations and inspiration to tackle those challenges in small but meaningful ways.


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. Our event is called TEDxLusaka, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxLusaka event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
