TEDx is a global platform that brings together individuals passionate about ideas worth spreading. Originating from the renowned TED Talks, TEDx events occur at the local level, allowing communities worldwide to share innovative concepts and inspiring stories.


The concept of TEDx[1] emerged from TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) Talks, which started in 1984. In 2009, TEDx was launched to extend this platform's reach and encourage local communities to organize their TED-like events. This initiative aimed to democratize knowledge and create a space for diverse voices.
