The concept of FreeBikes is simple, but the impact great: Ad-funded bikes are lent to students in Denmark. After one year serving as sustainable advertising channels, the bikes are shipped to Ghana for students in rural areas, who have a long way to school.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.*
