Fereshteh Book City & Café

Wheel of Fortune

TEDxGlobalDay is a one-day initiative to take place on September 23, 2017, when the global TEDx community comes together locally to discuss the world’s most pressing issues, how these issues affect our communities and the ways we can work together to find possible solutions through conversation and action.

TEDxGlobalDay is for all current TEDx organizers: license holders, team members, and volunteers. This initiative is not open to the public.




WATCH         This exciting day begins with a viewing experience of TEDGlobal>NYC, an inaugural TED event with a mission to reimagine the global story and catalyze outside-the-box thinking about world issues.

DISCUSS       Then we explore potential solutions for a problem that has an impact on our community. TEDxTehran has chosen “Wheel Of Fortune” as the main subject of our discussions.

ACTIVATE    The final stage of our event is to activate. We have designed an activity to do in teams around the issue we discussed.

At the end of the day, our TEDxGlobalDay group will have exciting, multifaceted potential solutions to issue related with this subject.

This event is made possible with generous support from Fereshteh Book City, Tehran.
