TEDx in a Box – IDEO.org

IDEO.org developed tools for organizers without access to technology to create TEDx experiences in diverse locations around the world. The purpose of the TEDx in a Box concept is to give TEDx organizers the tools necessary to host TEDx events in under-resourced areas and informal settlements around the world. TEDx has been experimenting with this idea and has previously distributed ten boxes at locations around the world. TEDx engaged IDEO.org to redesign the TEDx in a Box in a human-centered way, incorporating feedback from TEDx experiences with the initial boxes. The TEDx in a Box must be operational in areas with limited access to electricity and infrastructure, and be able to cross language barriers.
