BATON ROUGE – TEDxLSU 2013 is an independently organized event based on the theme of evolution – generating new thought by connecting existing resources. The inaugural event, TEDxLSU: Evolve will take place on Saturday, March 9, in the Reilly Theatre at LSU from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
TEDxLSU showcases innovative Louisianans who will each give the “talk of their life” around the power of ideas. Presenters include innovative thinkers, from both the university and the greater community, who will discuss their approaches to some of humanity’s fundamental concerns. Their creativity stems from linking resource networks, exploring across disciplines, transgressing cultural boundaries, and seeking simple, tangible solutions.
This diverse group of thought leaders, maverick thinkers and achievers, entrepreneurs and innovators, and humanitarians educate, inspire and stimulate change and evolution with the ultimate goal being inspired action across communities.
“To us, action includes the promotion and creation of ventures that will help shape the future of our region and state in a positive manner,” stated Joey Watson, TEDxLSU event organizer.
