What are TED and TEDx?
TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. TED believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. TED.com is a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world’s most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long.
A TEDx event is a local gathering where live TED-like talks and videos previously recorded at TED conferences are shared with the community. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis. The content and design of each TEDx event is unique and developed independently, but all of them have features in common.
