WHAT IS TEDx?
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 35 years ago, TED has grown to support world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives.
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events which focus on an interdisciplinary transfer of knowledge. TED provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx conferences, including ours, are self-organized. This year the committee is run by 10 students of the University of Edinburgh, who are keen to spread TED values alongside enthusiastic student ambassadors.
