For the second time, the University of the Pacific will host TEDxSanJoaquin, an online forum where Pacific students, alumni and staff who have made a difference in the world will discuss ways to improve Stockton and the Central Valley.
People will be able to watch the speeches today live and after the event at www.tedxsanjoaquin.org.
TED, which stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design, is a nonprofit that gives leaders throughout the world a chance to speak at conferences about "Ideas Worth Spreading."
The short talks are then posted on the TED website for anyone to view for free.
The theme of TEDxSanJoaquin is "Just the Right Amount of Wrong," and will focus on ways to help improve Stockton despite the city's bankruptcy.
The TEDxSanJoaquin event is partnering with The City 2.0: Stockton, which is an initiative to connect local citizens to transform the city. For more information, go to www.tedxsanjoaquin.org/thecity2.html.
