One Day of Powerful Talks
In the maiden edition of TEDxSomaiyaVidyavihar, we aim to establish innovative thinking among young minds, thus motivating them to become responsible citizens of the world. Our vision is to make TEDx Somaiya Vidyavihar a platform where the trailblazers of our society can showcase ideas that impart knowledge and inspire our community.
What is TED?
TED is a platform for ideas worth spreading. Started in 1984 as a conference where technology, entertainment and design converged, TED today shares ideas from a broad spectrum — from science to business to global issues. With its two annual conferences, video website TED.com, initiatives and community projects, TED is now a global movement focused on meaningful change through the power of ideas.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx, where x = independently organised TED event. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
Theme: Power of a just society
In the era of constant globalization and technological advancement, the widening gap between the privileged and the underprivileged is quite alarming and harmful to the health of our community. In our event, we attempt to illustrate how disciplines like technology, culture, and economics, to name a few, can be directed to positively impact our society.
