A global community that brings in knowledge and spreads inspiration

Founded in 1984, TED has become a global community of speakers from all backgrounds and cultures who desire to share their ideas and spread the inspiration with passionate individuals that are eager to seek knowledge and explore new areas.

TED believes that the power of ideas and innovations can change people’s attitudes, lifestyles and ultimately, change the whole world.

TED – A global community to share knowledge and skills

To be devoted to the mission “Ideas Worth Spreading”, TED Talks are often held in the form of short, power talks (18 minutes or less). Up to now, TED Talks cover almost all topics including science, business, and global issues in more than 100 languages. Along with the core purpose of TED, TEDx was introduced as a subsidiary model of TED to help share ideas in local communities around the world.
