Ideas are worth spreading, and that’s what TedX talks are all about. Local events throughout the world are bringing thought-provoking leaders to the stage with presentations about how to solve the world’s problems.
According to TedX CSU’s Facebook page, the Fort Collins annual event started in 2011. Each year it is streamed live and recorded for posting throughout the web, often pulling international viewership in the thousands.
