In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provided general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
So in our town we do have TEDxBhilwara team. TEDxBhilwara shares the same passion as TED. They aim to allow people to come together, make connections and share knowledge. They have initiated this because they believe, everybody has got his/her story to tell and the beautiful part is, each one is different from the other. Another objective of bringing this platform in city Bhilwara is to open the minds of Bhilwara people to broader perspectives of world and their surroundings. They do not want to change their perception completely but let them constantly learn about new ideas and perspectives.
This would help in city’s growth as well and give a different identity to city Bhilwara because the initiative is a unique one with a purpose of spreading knowledge from local community. Through this TEDx event, they aim to help young people step towards building a local community to work collaboratively with active members of society in order to become expert learners and foster enriching conversations of changing tomorrow.
