SEE

Light is everywhere. It’s in bright talent and brilliant ideas, shining minds and sparkling eyes.

SAVE

It’s time to save the light, keep the brightness and brilliance, preserve the shining.

BE

Find the bright side and spark your action, light it up and move forward with confidence.

SHARE

Inspire those around you: share the light as you go, to make the world a better place.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx.
TEDxRiga is a local, self-organized event that brings people together to share a TED-like experience.
