TED&TEDx

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] event, TEDTalks 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 program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

 

什么是TEDx?

本着传播有价值的思想的精神之宗旨,TED创立了一个叫TEDx的项目,它是一个TED风格的会议,由本地的组织者自发的组织。我们的活动叫TEDx[name],这里的 x 意思是独立策办的TED风格的活动。在我们的TEDx[name]活动上,将播放TED演讲的视频以及邀请本地的嘉宾参与演讲,我们期望这些演讲能够激起观众的思考和讨论,同时也增进观众之间的联系。TED大会对于TEDx项目提供指引意见,但单独的TEDx活动,包括我们这一个活动,都是各地独立主办的。

 

 

About TEDx, x = independently organized 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, 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.)

 

关于 TEDx, 这里的 x 意思是由本地人士独立举办的TED风格的活动。在所有的TEDx活动上,观众都会看到TED演讲视频以及现场的演讲,所有这些都会促发观众之间小范围的深入讨论与思索。所有这些由本地人士自发组织的活动都叫TEDx, x就是独立举办的TED活动。TED官方为TEDx提供指引,但是每个TEDx都是各地人士自行组织的。(需要符合一些要求和规定)

 

 

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in Oxford, UK. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to organize independent, TED-like events around the world; and the TEDFellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
