Theme – Journey To Purpose: Dream. Educate. Thrive.
Latent and dormant, we are each born with gifts and talents. It is through experiences in life that these gifts have the potential to be exposed and recognized. How do we increase the odds of finding purpose in life? Is it ever too late to find purpose? What role can the education system play in helping students find purpose? Our goal is to bring dynamic, leading-edge thought leaders and educators together to share their ideas and expressions about purpose – how to define and find purpose, and its effect on the human mind, spirit and well being.

9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
The event will be held at the auditorium of the Manhattan Beach Middle School, 1501 North Redondo Avenue, Manhattan Beach, California, 90266.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxManhattanBeach, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxManhattanBeach event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
