Are you ready to explore the


and the

infinitely close?

We live in an era of rapid innovations. Technology is empowering humans to explore the far limits of outer space, of deep seas and the infinitely small universe of our genome. But in the race for pushing the boundaries of humankind to the limit, we may run the risk of overlooking the importance of what is closer to us: other humans, nature, and even ourselves. How can we find the right perspective, bringing closer to us what seems infinitely far and spreading far the importance of preserving what is closer?

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. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
