In the spirit of "Ideas Worth Spreading," TEDx is a program that enables schools, businesses, libraries or just groups of friends to enjoy a TED-like experience through events they themselves organize, design and host. We're supporting approved organizers by offering a free toolkit that includes detailed advice, the right to use recorded TEDTalks, promotion on our site, connection to other organizers, and a little piece of our brand in the form of the TEDx label.

This channel is intended to highlight:
-Original speaker presentations at TEDx events
-Experiences of those who've attended TEDx events
-Teasers for upcoming TEDx events
-Anything else TEDx-related
