To partner on a program that will leverage the full TED platform to empower individuals to take collective action on "ideas worth doing" and expose TED's audience to Knight's tech for engagement strategy

TED is a community of some of the most talented problem-solvers in the world, and its events produce many breakthrough “Ideas Worth Spreading.” Knight is partnering with TED, a non-profit organization, to work on amplifying and measuring the impact of these ideas as they ripple through society, producing technology tools and best practices for connected action. At this week’s annual TED conference, Knight is running a workshop on online engagement that features members of the TED community from the business, political and social sectors, and sponsoring a pavilion centered on Tech for Engagement, that will be the scene of several problem-solving TED challenges.
