TED

Depuis 1984, les leaders et penseurs les plus brillants de leur génération se donnent rendez-vous une fois par an à l'occasion d'un évènement qu'ils décrivent les uns et les autres,  comme "Le spa ultime du cerveau","Le Davos des optimistes" ou bien encore "Un voyage de 4 jours dans le futur en compagnie de ceux qui le font".
 
De quoi parle-t-on ? Du TED - une conférence comme aucune autre. TED est l'acronyme de Technologie, Entertainment et Design - trois disciplines qui façonnent ensemble notre futur.
 
L'évènement dépasse toutefois ces trois seules disciplines, et un TED donne lieu à plus de cinquante présentations de domaines très variés ainsi qu'à des évènements dans la journée et en soirées. L'évènement en immersion et très intense permet aux participants et conférenciers de confronter, échanger et partager leurs idées d'une façon détonnante.
 
Des connexions trans-dsiciplines inattendues. Des points de vue extra-ordinaires. De l'inspiration. C'est ce que la magie TED propose quand près de 1000 personnes parmi les plus remarquables dans le monde se retrouvent au TED.
 
Curieux de découvrir à quoi cela ressemble ? Pour appréhender la magie TED, visionnez l'un des + 500 talks disponible sur le site du TED à www.ted.com .
 

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.)

About TED


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. The annual TEDGlobal conference will be held this October in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
