About TEDx 


In the spirit of Ideas Worth Spreading, TEDx is a programme of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED- like experience.

Our event is called TEDxPlaceDesNations, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPlaceDesNations event, TED Talks 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 programme, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
