TEDxLAU Salon V 1.0
Craving inspiration? It all starts with one idea.
In the spirit of “ideas worth spreading,” TED has created TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At TEDxLAU, TEDTalks and activities will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
The first event will be a TEDx Salon. We will screen 3-4 TEDTalks and have discussions/activities after each. Come on over to LAU and be part of this initiative where university students and professionals are inspired to work together and present creative, exciting new ideas. We do hope that these individual Salons will later lead to a full-blown event with live speakers at LAU this summer.

When And Where :

The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Two major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Long Beach, California (along with a parallel conference, TEDActive, in Palm Springs), and TEDGlobal is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.
