KAMLOOPS - Good ideas don't just come from old Harvard professors who sit pondering amongst many leather bound books. Kamloops is full of them, and young people are too.

At least, that's what producers of the popular non-profit, 'TED Talks' — a live speaker series that shares and discusses ideas — thought when they expanded to independent programming in local communities.

'TEDx' comes to Kamloops in February and is described as a program of loyal independently-organized events bringing people together to share a TED-like experience. It's part of over 1,000 organized upcoming TEDx events all over the world.

The local event in Kamloops is geared at youth and scheduled at TRU, Feb. 14. TED Talks video and live speakers will be used to connect small groups in discussion, building on the TED Talks mandate of 'Ideas Worth Spreading.'

The event is still in preliminary stages but keep updated by visiting the local event page online.
