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.
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.
Every year TedxYouth@NMS has come up with themes that substantiate profound signals to initiate a movement of change, a movement that really makes a difference. We aim to inspire young adults by staging innovative individuals who are determined to become what we call, “harbingers of change”. Thus, this year, with a similar motivation, our theme is central to “chain reaction”. Just as physics quotes, “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction”, our everyday actions have plenty consequences. These consequences have the ability to change, not just us as individuals but also the society we live in. Through this event, we hope to demonstrate the power of a single word that can create echoes loud enough to begin a change. This year’s event celebrates aspiring change-makers whose actions begin the ripple effect in this ocean full of change. We hope to commemorate the power of a single action. We hope to inspire young adults to take new actions. We hope to ignite the flames of change. We hope to initiate another chain reaction. We hope to commemorate the power of a single action.
