TEDx is now 4 years old! This past Saturday, March 23, TEDx celebrated this milestone with a global birthday party, convened by TEDx organizers, volunteers and fans worldwide. There were cakes, candles, wishes and even a kite or two — all paired with enough enthusiasm to last another four years and beyond.
With 6,417 events in 149 countries and 1,777 cities over the past four years, and now more than 25,000 talks online, the TEDx program would be nothing without its ever-expanding network of dedicated and hard-working volunteers.
