TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science, cultural, business, academic, to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events like TEDxUniversityofGlasgow help share ideas in communities around the world.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx – local, independently organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TEDx UniversityofGlasgow is a conference organized by the student community where speakers share engaging, intellectually stimulating, and intriguing experiences that will challenge your perceptions.
