The annual TED Conference has given rise to multiple, local initiatives aimed at sharing transformative ideas. That’s where TEDx comes in.
TEDx is an independently organized, community based version of the larger TED-experience. Planned and coordinated by an all volunteer team, TEDx showcases transformative and thought-provoking ideas on the local level.
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. (Subject to certain rules and regulations).
