THE call is now out for nominations and applications from individuals and groups from both Cambodia and around the world to speak at the next TEDxPhnomPenh event.

A “one-day celebration of ideas worth spreading”, TEDx combines video with live talks to stimulate thought and discussion into a number of diverse subjects and issues.

The theme being explored this time round is “Work |Play” and is inspired by the dynamic nature of Cambodia and how this relates to its people. Allison Hoffman, part of the planning committee, says: “Because of its international profile, TEDx-PhnomPenh will give the rest of the world a glimpse of the innovation and passion happening in Cambodia.”

The October 15 event will be held at Northbridge International School. For information on how to apply to present at TEDxPhnomPenh, log on to Applications close at 5pm on August 12. Any questions can be emailed to [email protected]
