TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
TEDx is an independently organized TED event which helps communities enjoy a TED like experience, through live speakers and videos of TED talks. Extensively conducted by leading universities and organizations, TEDx events have seen incredible growth across the globe. A TEDx event aims to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation among the members of the audience. Idea-centric, crisp, 18-minute deliverances by eminent personalities from diverse fields inspire and educate alike. The breaks provide ample time to strike up conversations with other enthusiasts, paving the way for interesting discussions and varied perspectives.
The first edition of TEDx was launched in 2018 after a series of setbacks. Where in one hand we have the unrivalled concept of TED influencing thousands of people every day, we have people who do it for changing people's lives with nothing expected in return. Those who do it for passion and are skilled in the craft always do it better. TEDx VSSUT is a perfect paradigm of how big events like TEDx can be modelled and organised in areas like Burla. The first edition of TEDx was launched under the theme of “SOLVING THE UNSOLVED”. 15 speakers were invited from across all walks of life and a grand event was organized along with an introductory Gala Dinner. TEDx VSSUT is back again to organise its second edition here which promises to be only better and improve on the benchmark. Since then, the team has gained more experience and is committed to work through the past flaws & improve on it relentlessly.
