What is tedx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxLusaka, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxLusaka event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. 

METAMORPHOSIS

TEDxLusaka turned ten years old in August 2020, and it all started with the 2010 FIFA World Cup. We had to download some sample TED talks and burn them to DVDs to share with those who had no idea what TED or TED Talks were, let alone TEDx.  Over the years, the TED and TEDx brands grew and we didn’t need to spend an hour explaining ourselves. There are a few people we encounter who have never seen a TED Talk, but these are rare occurrences. 2020 is the first year that members of the Organising Committee have not had to put in their own money to ensure the event goes ahead. But this is what volunteering and the TEDx spirit is all about.
