Our Mission: Spread ideas
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. On TED.com, we're building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world's most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long.
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.
TEDxMITWPU is an independent, student-led conference annually licensed by TED that promises to deliver inspiring, informative, and unique expert talks on novel subject matters in Technology, Entertainment, and Design for the youth. Keeping up with our promise to provide a “brain spa,” we have had riveting speakers like Gaur Gopal Das, Ashish Chanchlani, Mohammed Salim Khan, whose videos have crossed 4M+, 1.8M+, 460K+ views, respectively, on YouTube.
