TEDx brings the spirit of TED’s mission of ideas worth
spreading to local communities around the globe. TEDx events
are organised independently under a free license granted by TED
and include live speakers and recorded TED talks.
Our event is called TEDxBITSGoa, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBITSGoa event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a group. This TEDx event is independently organized. TEDxBITSGoa is conducted by an exclusive team of undergraduates from BITS Pilani KK Birla Goa Campus. With a diversity of fields like design, marketing, publicity and research, the team is committed to its mission of bringing forward ideas worth sharing. TEDxBITSGoa's passion and mission is to reach out to people to learn, share and discuss ideas that have the power and potential to Make A Difference in our lives and in our world.
Our target is to impress upon a diverse audience how important it is to innovate. It has grown in stature over the years and has featured people such as Kiran Bedi, Kalki Koechlin, Clinton Cerejo, Sonam Wangchuk, Sumeet Vyas, Kirti Kulhari, Viraj Ghelani, Elli Avrram and many others. TEDxBITSGoa is now also officially, the oldest TEDx in India, and we here intend to keep working hard to ensure our event becomes bigger, better and more inspiring. TEDxBITSGoa operates under an official license from TED.
x= independently organised event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and Daniel Kahneman. The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; TED Translators, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established The Audacious Project that takes a collaborative approach to funding ideas with the potential to create change at thrilling scale; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
