TEDxEdina 2022

TedXEdina is back! In October 2022, we gathered once again to share ideas with the power to make our community and our world a better place. And this year, we added a [email protected] program to elevate youth voice in our community. We are very proud of our youth organizing team, who won Edina’s 2023 “Connecting with Kids” Award.
