2:30 to 7:30 p.m., Stetson University, Allen Hall
Tickets still available!

The theme for Stetson University 's TEDx event will be Significance in Action: Creating Learning, Innovation and Happiness.

TED, a nonprofit organization with a mission to spread ideas, brings together three different realms of society -- technology, entertainment and design -- to discuss a broad range of ideas for topics and conversations. Stetson University's TEDx event will give the Stetson University and DeLand communities a chance to engage in thought-provoking presentations, comprised of short talks, demonstrations and performances on a variety of topics relating to the theme.

Significance in Action: Creating Learning, Innovation and Happiness spans three unique topics so that potential speakers may tailor their proposal and presentation to the theme that works for them. The three concepts embedded in this year's theme focus on creating learning in a multiplicity of places and life experiences; the creating of innovation and how ideas are formulated and brought to fruition and on the creating of happiness as a key to living a significant life.
