In the spirit of ideas worth sharing, TEDx is an event sponsored by TED in which live TED-like talks and performances are shared with the community. TEDxNorthwesternU, with the affiliation of TED and Northwestern University, organizes one event every spring that invites highly esteemed scholars and leaders to present their ideas to the university community. At our TEDxNorthwesternU event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small, yet enthusiastic and energized environment.
TED provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including TEDxNorthwesternU, are self-organized. This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.
