What is TED?
TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. TED is now an annual event that brings together the world’s leading thinkers and doers to share ideas that that matter in any discipline—technology, entertainment, design, science, humanities, business & development. On TED.com, the best talks and performances from TED and partners are available to the world for free.
What is TEDx?
TEDx was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading.” The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. At TEDx events, a screening of TED Talks videos—or a combination of live presenters and TED Talks videos –sparks deep conversation and connections. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated, on a community-by-community basis.
What is TEDxKids@NMS?
TEDxKids@NMS is an intricately woven web of changemakers yearning to create a difference and break the barriers of conformity. Its theme for 2020 is “Resilience”. The year 2020 is equivalent to a rope tied onto our hand, pulling us into an endless void. The everlasting setback is what we aim to avoid. It is in times like these, where resilience, persistence and strength are the crucial pillars of achieving the state of euphoria, fighting for that one day, far away from this societal dystopia. We bring forth the warriors of tomorrow, to be our ray of hope in these hours of sorrow. They inspire us to get up stronger than ever, because resilience is what’s our companion in this endeavor. There have been thousands of entrepreneurs and leaders who have faced this devastating obstacle. However their art of thriving has been nothing but mystical. So as we struggle to figure this year out, we’re offered a helping hand, by our speakers, who depict what resilience is all about.
