About TEDx
TED is a nonprofit devoted to ideas worth spreading. TED believes passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives, and ultimately, the world. To this end, it hosts annual conferences exploring many of the issues facing our world.

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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These 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.
