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. Our event is called TEDxIndianaUniversity, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxIndianaUniversity event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

Emerging technology, disease, and social movements have fundamentally changed the landscape of humanity in the modern era. In the past decade, we have seen technology transform our lives as well as the way that we interact with one another. We have experienced global epidemics that threaten the very fabric of our society. We've seen disaster strike and the whole world stand together in solidarity. So many changes are occurring seemingly instantaneously, and we must step back and take a moment to contemplate how we will face the challenges that lie ahead, how we will learn from the past.
