ST. THOMAS — TEDx Saint Thomas announced Friday that the TEDx series will return to St. Thomas in Spring 2020. TEDx Saint Thomas is currently accepting applications from individuals interested in speaking at this year’s event.

The organization is looking for dynamic community members and professionals to present short, powerful talks (15 minutes or fewer) on an engaging topic they are passionate about sharing. Prospective speakers are invited to apply by submitting a paragraph describing the topic they wish to speak about, and a copy of their CV to [email protected]. The deadline to apply is November 15, 2019.

TEDxStThomas is a public, ticketed event. First held on St. Thomas in 2015, TEDxStThomas provides the opportunity for Virgin Islanders to come together to share ideas with the community and the world.

Past talks have covered a wide variety of topics including sustainable agriculture, the role of photography in preserving local history, the stories of climate change refugees, and solutions to technology addiction.

More information can be found on, or by e-mailing [email protected].

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
