Lets organize TEDx Events around the world yearly on 9/21 focusing on multidisciplinary aspects of creating peace on Earth. Lets be the 1st generation of humans to do away with all war!




I am encouraging people to apply to organize TEDx Events anywhere around the world focusing on the multidisciplinary aspects of imagining and creating world peace.   The events may be held on 9/21 of each year which is the International Day of Peace and Global Truce Cease fire or on any day of the year since we can always focus on creating world peace!.

Would anyone like to organize a TEDx event 9/21?

Let's be the first generation of humans to create a lasting world peace and live in a future without war.


I really love all of the Ted Talks on Ted, TedMed and TedEx. I would love to be a part of organizing a meaningful TEDx event and it and having it filmed. It is quite a project to put it together but with a group of dedicated volunteers we could do it.  In addition I would still like to encourage people around the world to organize similar events in their area to be held on 9/21 of each upcoming year or at anytime.

I have been relatively involved with #occupywallstreet, and I it would be great if we could do TEDxoccupy in NYC around the topic of Peace. We could potentially use the venue that the Red Zone Loft  Please contact me if you are interested. Thanks,
