It is rare to see bright minds congregate to co-create new knowledge and passions. November 18, 2018, saw a beautiful confluence of some of the brightest minds, whose coming together sparked discussions that mattered, broke preset biases and broadened horizons. In a far-away corner of Delhi-NCR, TEDxShivNadarUniversity saw leaders - those of the present, and of the future - indulge in ideas that could shape the world.
With all previously set records and benchmarks being shattered, and all expectations being exceeded, TEDxShivNadarUniversity once again proved its mettle in amplifying TED's mission of spreading ideas that matter.
TED is an annual event where some of the world's leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are most passionate about. "TED" stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design -- three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping our future. TED is owned by a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation, and is devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less).
Evolving out of the success of TED, TEDx was created in 2009 in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." It empowers independent organizers to bring a TED-like experience under a free license granted by TED. Just like in TED conferences, ideas are spread in the TEDx conferences in the suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances that are idea-focused, and cover a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter.
