What is TEDx?
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 (subject to certain rules and regulations).
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or fewer) delivered by today’s leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED’s annual conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, and made available, free, on TED.com.
TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Monica Lewinsky, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
TED’s open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include the following:
- TED.com – provides TED Talk videos that are posted daily;
- the Open Translation Project – provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from thousands of volunteers worldwide;
- the educational initiative TED-Ed;
- the annual million-dollar TED Prize – funds exceptional individuals with a “wish,” or idea, to create change in the world; and
- TEDx – provides licenses to thousands of individuals and groups who host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; and
- TED Fellows program – selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
