About Us

What is TEDxEducationCity

TEDxEducationCity is a completely student-run event based in Doha, Qatar. Each year, the event brings together speakers and audience from various intellectual disciplines to spark fresh thoughts and discussions.

What is TED

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

TEDxEducationCity 2015 Theme

This year's theme is 'Revolution'. In the broad sense of the word, we explore the different ways that transformation can happen. This brings together the variety of topics such as politics, technology, arts and culture, education, spirituality, economics, and gender relations.

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.
