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. There have been over 3000 TEDx events to date. 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. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis with the purpose of inspiring innovation, thought leadership and visionary insight.
TEDxBelmopan is organized by Outliers.
TED is a global foundation devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading which brings together some of the world’s leading thinkers and doers to share what they are most passionate about. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, and Design –three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping our future. Since then, its scope has become ever broader, showcasing ideas that matter in any discipline–science, arts, global issues, media, architecture, music and much more. Attendees have called it “the ultimate brain spa” and “a journey into the future.” The diverse audience —CEOs, scientists, Philanthropists -is almost as extraordinary as the speakers, including Bill Clinton, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, etc.
The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in Oxford, UK. TEDʼs media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide.
TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world,and the TEDFellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
