The TED Community
TEDx events occur locally around the world. Previously recorded TED talks and TEDx speakers take part in this platform, spreading important ideas. These events are planned and coordinated separately from TED on a community level. Each event brings its own unique identity and message, but shares commonalities with every TEDx event. Thousands of these events occur every year around the world.
TED is a global community that brings together people of every background and discipline. The overlying goal is to spread ideas that can help shape the world into a better place to live. This is mainly accomplished through TED and TEDx conferences that directly empower speakers to share their ideas in person with multitudes of people. Aside from the conferences, TED has a website that acts as a hub for the community to connect and learn from one another. You will also find previously recorded TED and TEDx talks on their website. At the heart of TED is the idea of human progress, and the momentum of this idea is growing.
