What is TED?
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 shaping our future
Past speakers include Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, Paul Simon, Sir Richard Branson, Philippe Starck and Bono
TED was first held in Monterey, California, in 1984 and it now takes place at Long Beach, California and in Edinburgh, Scotland
What is TED? ď‚§
Between June 2006 and July 2007, over 700 TEDTalks have been made available on-line for free on TED.com
By January 2009, they had been viewed 50 million times. By June 2011, they had been viewed 500 million times and this number is growing every day
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx, where x = local, self-organised TED-like events
At a TEDx event, TEDTalks videos and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion that bring people together to share a TED-like experience
TEDx events are non-profit and organised by volunteers with a passion for their communities and “ideas worth spreading”
It’s a global phenomenon: by January 2012, 3190 TEDx events had been held in over 800 cities around the world.
What is TEDxPlainpalais?
Moved by a common passion for TED and its power of spreading ideas, a group of 9 like-minded individuals have decided to take the challenge to organize TEDx in Geneva.
Leveraging the fact that the official TEDx Geneva will not be held in 2013, TEDx Plainpalais aims to be the most important TEDx in town.
We aim of getting at least 2 of our talks included in the main TED.com platform (less than 2% of all TEDx talks are selected).
Our theme for the event is: “The Power of One – The impact an individual can have, overcoming the barrier of –I’m just a drop in the Ocean-”
The event will be held on 19 February 2013 at the Salle Centrale de la Madeleine
We will host 150 selected guests from the worlds of technology, entertainment, design, business, government and education, from Geneva and beyond
There will be approx 12 over a whole afternoon and evening with plenty of time to discuss.
All talks will be recorded and released on our website, a dedicated YouTube channel and on tedxtalks.ted.com http://www.tedxplainpalais.com/
Who are the Speakers?
9 Thought Leaders from the private and public sectors will share their stories on how are they having an impact on the World. Entrepreneurs, Leadership & Culture Gurus , Teachers, Transformation Officers, and Storytellers will inspire the TEDxPlainpalais audience through their experience. To read more about them please go to our website: http://www.tedxplainpalais.com/speakers/ http://www.tedxplainpalais.com/
Not far from Planpalais, but closer to the Vieille Ville, TEDxPlainpalais will be held in a charming location at the heart of Geneva: Salle Centrale de la Madeleine Rue de la Madeleine 10 1204 Geneva http://www.tedxplainpalais.com/
