What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has developed a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to have a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPotsdam, where x = independently organized TED event. Our TEDxPotsdam event combines TED Talks video and live speakers to create 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.

» Science meets culture on a local stage: I am delighted that bright minds will once again be given a stage at HOT this year to share their passion under the motto 'Ideas worth spreading'. This stimulates thought and discourse and opens up new spaces, in short: TEDxPotsdam is the communication of the future. «
