The TED talks at this year’s TEDxOrlando event examined family relationships, the environment and global issues that captured the varied meanings of “home.”
“Home” was the theme of the 2018 TEDxOrlando event, which took place Saturday, Oct. 27 at Full Sail University in Winter Park.
Attendees of the five-hour event enjoyed TED talks from 11 Central Florida-based speakers who shared presentations on the multifaceted concept of home – with topics ranging widely from co-housing communities and foster care, Florida-native bacteria and water quality, alligators and Puerto Rican migrants, and the Everglades plight and spaceflight.
After the event, TEDx audience members received the opportunity to meet and greet the speakers over food and beverages during the TEDx afterparty.
