What is TED
TED is a nonprofit organization that welcomes individuals of all disciplines and cultures, providing them with a platform to share and discuss ideas. It is a community of curious and passionate souls, eager for a deeper understanding of the world. Through the spreading of ideas, the TED community hopes to inspire new perspectives, change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world.
What is TEDx
TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading.” It supports independent organizers who want to create a TED-like event in their own community. Our event is called TEDxZiauddin, where x= independently organized TED event. Through a combination of TED Talks screenings and live presenters, TEDx aims to spark deep conversations and connections at a local level.
The TED conference provides general guidelines for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised.
