Ideas Worth Spreading

About TEDx

Imagine a day filled with brilliant speakers, thought-provoking video and mind-blowing conversation. By organizing a TEDx event, you can create a unique gathering in your community that will unleash new ideas, inspire and inform.


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. TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. The agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation.

TED是一个非营利性组织,致力于传播思想,通常以简短,有力的演讲(18分钟或更短)的形式进行。 TED始于1984年,由技术,娱乐和设计融合而成。如今,它涵盖了几乎所有主题,包括从科学到商业再到全球性问题—使用100多种语言。 TED是一个全球社区,欢迎来自各个领域和文化背景的人们对世界有更深入的了解。我们充满激情地相信思想的力量会改变人们的态度,生活以及最终改变世界,目标是使伟大的思想变得更易获得并激发对话。


TEDx is a grassroots initiative, created in the spirit of TED’s overall mission to research and discover “ideas worth spreading.” TEDx brings the spirit of TED to local communities around the globe through TEDx events. These events are organized by passionate individuals who seek to uncover new ideas and to share the latest research in their local areas that spark conversations in their communities. TEDx events include live speakers and recorded TED Talks, and are organized independently under a free license granted by TED. These events are not controlled by TED, but event organizers agree to abide by our format, and are offered guidelines for curation, speaker coaching, event organizing and more. They learn from us and from each other. More than 3000 events are now held annually.

TEDx是本着TED的整体使命精神由基层群众自发组织的活动,以搜寻和发现“值得传播的思想”为核心。 TEDx通过TEDx活动将TED的精神带给了全球各地的社区。这些活动是由充满热情的个人组织的,他们寻求发现新的想法并分享能在当地引起社区对话的最新研究。 TEDx活动包括现场演讲者和提前录制的TED演讲,并根据TED授予的免费许可证独立组织。这些活动不受TED的控制,但活动组织者同意遵守TED的格式,并为策展,演讲者指导,活动组织等提供指南。他们与TED彼此学习。现在每年在全球各地会举办3000多个TEDx活动。
