About Us

What is TEDxEducationCity?

At TEDxEducationCity, TEDTalk videos and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection.

This year's theme is 'branch out'. When we think about our theme, we think about a tree.
A tree's trunk represents its foundation and strength, much like our university degree represents the "core basis" of our knowledge. However, the trunk also develops into different branches. These branches are our projects, interests, and explorations. Join us as we explore the world of experts to find out what their trunks are made of and how they've branched out.

What is TED?

TED is a multidisciplinary platform to discuss 'Ideas Worth Spreading."
Technology, Entertainment, and Design – three simple words, a world of possibilities.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
Anyone taking part makes up the x.
Join the movement, be the x.
