Technology Entertainment and Design

TED started in 1984, its emphasis was technology and design, consistent with its Silicon Valley origins, but it has since broadened its focus to include talks on many scientific, cultural, and academic topics often through storytelling. The speakers are given a maximum of 18 minutes to present their ideas in the most innovative and engaging ways they can. In the spirit of "Ideas Worth Spreading," TED created the TEDx platform (where x stands for independently organized TED event) empowering people around the world to organize their own events and unite their communities in a TED-like experience, under TED’s guidance.

ABOUT TEDXIKEJA


TEDxIkeja is designed to tell stimulating yet, native stories and showcase unusual ideas to inspire people to change their lives, their communities, and their world. At TEDxIkeja, our task is not simple. We search, and must find notable people, who offer innovation, enterprise and optimism as antidotes to native challenges. These are the “TEDx Breeds”; people with “Ideas worth sharing.”

Busayo Oluwadamilare - Researcher

A core humanitarian and development enthusiast, Busayo is a graduate of History and International Relations from Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko with a Masters’ degree in Humanitarian and Refugee Studies from the Premier University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Oyo State.

Busayo believes in the abilities of the Nigerian youths to chart a course for the future, and a Peace Scholar, Peace Ambassador and Thought Engineer, he is aware that a functional system is the panacea to a good governance on which democratic system rests.

As a researcher, Busayo connects with the practicality of knowledge, not in the acquisition of certificates; that is why he conducted a research in the North East in October 2016 to find the challenges faced by displaced persons in relations to their needs and aspirations. This drive attracted the ECOWAS Youth Council, and ECOWAS appointed him as the Youth Peace Ambassador in April 2017.

Busayo Morakinyo will be speaking at TEDxIkeja 2017.

Where do we go from here? TEDxIkeja 2017 Narratives

The world is changing. Just as there are innovations, there are evolving challenges. The fang of terrorism has sunk deep into the social-political structure of the world system. Immigration is becoming a global burden. Technology is disrupting everything. The new world has not spared our belief systems, culture, and philosophy, as dividing lines between the truth and facts blur. Now, we are fighting for the rights of everything, and everybody: from climate change, gay right to job cut. It feels like the history of humanity is being swallowed up by liberalism. TEDxIkeja 2017 engages Thought Leaders. Innovators. Academia. Clergy. Tech enthusiasts. To offer innovation, enterprise, and optimism as a path to the future, amidst technological, philosophical, and political revolutions that are unfolding before us. Hence, the theme of TEDxIkeja 2017: Where Do We Go from Here? Join us.
