IT'S ABOUT FREEDOM AND SHARING
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading.
TED is an annual event where some of the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are most passionate about. “TED” stands for technology, entertainment and design – three broad subject areas that are collectively shaping our future. TED is a platform for “ideas worth spreading”. Started in 1984 as a conference, where technology, entertainment and design converged, TED today shares ideas from a broad spectrum — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 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.
