The TEDx community would be nothing without thousands of dedicated volunteers. TEDxTehran, the first TEDx event in Iran, recently honored these hardworking champions of ideas worth spreading with a nerdout-worthy infographic on the volunteers themselves, designed by team member Ladan Asemi. TEDxTehran’s very first event will be held this February, on the 14th.
Says TEDxTehran volunteer blogger, Suad Jafarzadeh:
Tehran is a growing metropolis of 12 million people who breathe life into the city with their creativity and innovation. The opportunity to come together with the dynamic and spirited cityfolk of Tehran is precisely why I decided to answer TEDxTehran’s call for volunteers.
I was among twenty applicants selected for the interview process, all eager to help put together the first TEDx event in Iran and help spread compelling ideas that are born within the country.
…Volunteerism is an invaluable aspect of the global TEDx communities, and it is born from a collective need to share, exchange and promote ideas that can enhance our lives…With a team of thirteen selected volunteers with diverse backgrounds ranging from graphic designers and photographers to gold medal athletes and a professional chef, we plan to put Tehran on the global map of TEDx!
