TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world. TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
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, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. 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.
Our event is called TEDxRayatBahraUniversity, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxRayatBahraUniversity event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a group. The vision is to establish TEDxRayatBahraUniversity as a reputed and sustainable platform for regular interaction between TEDxRayatBahraUniversity communiuty & world’s leading thinkers and doers while promoting TED’s mission of spreading ideas that inspire people to change their lives, their futures and ultimately their world. The 1st edition of TEDxRayatBahraUniversity will be held on Saturday, the 23th of September, 2017 at Rayat Bahra University, Mohali.
