About TED and TEDx:

TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Today, TED is best thought of as a global community welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world.

Created in the spirit of TED’s mission, the TEDx program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. While TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, at every TEDx event you will find:

- TED's celebrated format: A suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances on a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder -- and to provoke conversations that matter

- TEDTalks videos: A minimum of two pre-recorded talks from the acclaimed TEDTalks video series
