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 TEDxUofG, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUofG 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.

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 host
local, self-organized events around the world, and the TEDFellows program,
