Ted TalksTED  è un’organizzazione no-profit che ha come obiettivo quello di diffondere idee di valore – ‘ideas worth spreading’. Iniziata come una conferenza di quattro giorni in California oltre 30 anni fa, TED è cresciuta nella sua “mission“ attraverso molteplici iniziative. Nella Conferenza annuale di TED (Long Beach, California) i maggiori protagonisti del “pensare” e del “fare” a livello internazionale sono invitati a raccontare le loro idee in un tempo stabilito della durata massima di 18 minuti. Gli interventi sono messi a disposizione, gratuitamente, sul sito ted.com. Tra i relatori delle conferenze TED ricordiamo Bill Gates, Al Gore, Richard Branson, Philippe Starck, Stephen Hawking, Isabel Allende, Gordon Brown e molti altri intellettuali influenti e opinion leader provenienti da tutto il mondo.

Per rispondere alla sua mission, TED ha lanciato un programma di eventi locali, chiamato TEDx, che si propone di far rivivere un’esperienza simile a quella del TED, unendo persone e idee sotto l’auspicio di diffondere idee di valore all’interno della comunità locale. TEDx è un fenomeno internazionale, ad altissima visibilità. Info www.ted.com/tedx

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. 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. In fact, everything we do — from our TED Talks videos to the projects sparked by the TED Prize, from the global TEDx community to the TED-Ed lesson series — is driven by this goal: How can we best spread great ideas? TED is owned by a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation. Our agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation. Info www.ted.com

The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences. At TEDx events, a screening of TED Talks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TED Talks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, under a free license granted by TED. Info www.ted.com/tedx
