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 TEDxYouth@CIRS, where x = independently organized TED event.
At our very first TEDxYouth@CIRS virtual event, renowned professionals will bring experience and wisdom from their fields to spark deep discussion. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
In a world dominated by the self-serving, there are a very few who devote their entire lives towards trying to create something unique, striving to stand out from the rest. There are even fewer who successfully do so, walking the extra mile and breaking the extra bead of sweat, hoping to make the lives of those around them a little better. We believe that these stories are not based on massive leaps, but rather, small meaningful steps taken, with utmost confidence and faith in one’s dreams. Such people deserve the limelight and we hope that this event provides the platform to create a metamorphosis, unleashing the endless potential to reinvent the world, taking one step at a time.
