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 TEDxYale, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYale event, TED Talks 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.
Speakers have included thought leaders from around the nation, and regular attendees include students, faculty, and residents of New Haven. Talks that are given at our conferences are all accessible online and have received over 30,000 views.
