About TEDx, x = independently organized event
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; TED Translators, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established The Audacious Project that takes a collaborative approach to funding ideas with the potential to create change at thrilling scale; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
Shifting Paradigms can have a profound impact on the world, as it opens up new opportunities for growth and innovation, and challenges existing systems and structures. For example, the shift towards digital technologies in recent years has completely transformed the way we communicate, work, and access information, leading to new opportunities for entrepreneurs and businesses, as well as challenges for traditional industries.
Join us for an inspiring day of talks and performances at our TEDx event focused on the theme of “Shifting Paradigms.” Our diverse lineup of speakers will share their stories, ideas, and experiences to challenge your thinking and expand your worldview.
Throughout the event, we will explore how paradigms – the fundamental ways in which we understand and interact with the world – are constantly evolving and shifting, and how this impacts everything from technology to politics to culture. You’ll hear from experts in fields such as science, technology, art, and business, who will share their insights and vision for the future.
Our event will also feature interactive activities, networking opportunities, and delicious refreshments, all designed to foster meaningful connections and conversations among attendees. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, a scientist, an artist, or simply someone who’s curious about the world around you, you won’t want to miss this engaging and thought-provoking event.
