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.

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.

TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.

This year’s TEDxJacobsUniversity event is featured by the theme ‚dandelion‘. Ideas are worth nothing if they are not shared, as seeds are worth nothing if they are not dispersed. The dandelion‘s white floaties have umbrella-like extensions, which make them travel to distant places, if the wind is strong enough. TEDxJacobsUniversity is our platform to spread ideas as far as possible. Once at their destination, the little parachutes can establish themselves as soon as they are nourished well enough. Be the soil and sun for the ideas we spread, be our guest at TEDxJacobsUniversity 2018! Let your mindset be changed by our talks, like the dandelion changes its color from yellow to white. For that our speaker’s ideas can flourish with and through you.

You can find the schedule and the speakers here.
