TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
What is TEDx?
Imagine a day filled with brilliant speakers, thought-provoking video and mind-blowing conversation. A unique gathering in your community that will unleash new ideas, inspire and inform. The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences.
