JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – TEDxFSCJ is now accepting applications for speakers for its 2020 annual conference titled, “Wonder.” Applications will be accepted through Saturday, October 5, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. EST.
“Wonder” will focus on what connects us all. It’s our lifeline, binding us to the endless curiosity we knew as children and restoring in us a desire to explore the new, the difficult and the uncharted. We may speak different languages and cherish different beliefs, but we are united by a common capacity to feel astonishment at the beauty of the universe and awe at the fathomless depths of human courage and creativity.
Speakers will be expected to convey thoughts and ideas that educate, ignite passion, spark conversation and leave a lasting impact. Those who are passionate about sharing knowledge and broadening understanding are invited to submit their application online at tedxfscj.com on or before the October 5, 2019, deadline. All FSCJ students, staff, faculty and administration, as well as members of the Jacksonville community are invited to apply.
TEDxFSCJ 2020 is scheduled for Saturday, April 4, 2020. The event will take place at FSCJ’s Kent Campus, Main Auditorium, 3939 Roosevelt Blvd., Jacksonville, FL 32205.

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.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks delivered by today’s leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED’s annual gathering in Vancouver, Canada, TEDWomen and TEDGlobal conferences, and thousands of independently organized TEDx events around the world, then made available, free, on TED.com and other channels.
TED's open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include TED.com, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily; TEDx, which provides licenses to thousands of individuals and groups who host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities; and the educational initiative TED-Ed.
