Another TEDx event is putting down its roots in the New North.

TEDxUW-Green Bay will be held Nov. 1 at the Weidner Center on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. The event, which is being held in collaboration with the faculty from UWGB’s College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, joins the locally organized TEDxFond du Lac and TEDxOshkosh.

Speaker nominations and applications are being accepted through June 20 for the inaugural event. TEDxUW-Green Bay organizers are seeking speakers with bold and impactful ideas. Nomination forms are available at www.tedxuwgreenbay.com.

“TEDx Talks present one of the very best ways to reach people at every level of the community regardless of their gender, ethnicity, age or economic status,” says Regan Gurung, a professor of human development and psychology at UWGB. “Especially as someone who has given a TEDx Talk, the opportunity to help showcase Green Bay’s best ideas on the UW-Green Bay campus is enthralling and energizing. Get ready for great stuff, Green Bay.”

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Created 30 years ago, TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to ideas worth spreading with two annual TED Conferences where the world’s leading thinkers and doers speak for 18 minutes or less.
