TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman. The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia, along with the TEDActive simulcast event in nearby Whistler.
ABOUT TEDx, x = independently organized event
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, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
TEDxMünster premiered in May 2013 at the unforgotten location “Hassos Halle” (which was in fact demolished the day after). For the first time a team of voluntary organizers brought the idea of TEDx to Münster on a regional stage in Westphalia. A year later the second run, presenting nine speakers in May 2014, was themed “Understanding the World”. According to the mission of TED and TEDx, TEDxMünster aims at bringing together people from various areas of entertainment, education, design and business to exchange and to spread innovative ideas. In June 2015, 14 Speakers from Austria, Australia, Denmark, Egypt, Tunesia and Germany presented their talks under the title “The Story of Growth” at Münster University of Applied Sciences.
