What is TED?
TED is a nonprofit that has, over the last ten years, developed into the most important global platform for disseminating knowledge and ideas globally, in the form of high-profile events and filmed talks. You may have probably already watched some TED talks on the organization’s own site (www.ted.com), or on one of the many other digital channels that make them accessible in multiple languages to hundreds of millions of people around the world.
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
