TEDx, the most attractive idea presentation event in the world.
TEDxHamamatsu will introduce speakers from various field such as local culture, tradition, art, and industry, and share their ideas worth spreading on the day. The presentation will be recoded and post to the internet as well.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDxHamamatsu is officially licensed by TED and established in Oct 2014. It is organized by the volunteers as NPO and our mission is to spread worth ideas of Hamamatsu to the world, as well as to introduce the world brilliant ones to the people in Hamamatsu.
To achieve the goal, we act not only to hold TEDx event but also to organize community activities to contribute to make Hamamatsu city brighter.
Hamamatsu, which had grown as “Industrial town” in Japan, is now faced with decadence due to transferring the companies to overseas and declining population. TEDxHamamatsu aims to provide the place to share the great ideas which is burying in this area, to encourage the city.
We hope that this event will be great opportunity for the attendees to find our treasures with touching local attractiveness and sharing the worth experiences.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or fewer) delivered by today’s leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED’s annual conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, and made available, free, on TED.com.
TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Monica Lewinsky, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala,Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
TED’s open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include TED.com, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from thousands of volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed; the annual million-dollar TED-Prize, which funds exceptional individuals with a “wish,” or idea, to create change in the world; TEDx, which provides licenses to thousands of individuals and groups who host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
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.)
