TED’s mission has always been to spread “ideas worth sharing”. Through so-called TED talks, speakers from all kinds of backgrounds aim to inspire an audience, foster innovation and bring about positive change. TEDx essentially does the same, but on a local scale. With our yearly event, TEDxAUCollege offers a TED-like experience to (AUC) students and the rest of Amsterdam.
Because after all, what is a better place to learn from each other’s ideas than at a university? The diverse nature of TED events fits perfectly with the liberal arts and sciences program and AUC’s small-scale approach creates a very open atmosphere where students and professors listen to and learn from each other. TEDxAUCollege opens up a new space for them to get involved and inspired, connecting leading figures in their respective fields with a community that is eager to learn.
TEDx is one of AUC’s biggest and most professional committees and is celebrating its fifth year anniversary next year. Questions? Want to get involved? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website.
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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 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.)
