The speakers, in the style of the popular TED talks featuring “ideas worth spreading,” each had eight minutes to share an innovative idea with the Tufts community. Videos of the event can be viewed through the Tufts Idea Exchange YouTube channel.
Here’s a clip of one speaker, Kathleen Greenman, A12, sharing her vision for better friendships and community at Tufts:
Tufts Idea Exchange (TEX) is “a one-day forum hosted jointly by OneWorld and the Institute for Global Leadership’s Synaptic Scholars program. Ten speakers chosen from amongst the students, faculty and alumni of Tufts University will each have 10 minutes to tell you about a brilliant idea that they’ve had. There are no limitations on subject or field.”
Rita Bennett-Chew (A’12), a member of the TEX organizing team, states:
“I’m excited to be working on TEX because I believe in the spread of ideas and collaboration between various humanitarian groups in our increasingly connected world.
The deadline to apply to be a panelist at TEX is March 11th, and applications can be completed online.
