About the event
TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." It supports independent organizers who want to create a TED-like event in their own community.
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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 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).
The spark: A suite of short, carefully prepared Talks on a variety of topics ranging from Genomics to NASA and the Space Program, Journalism, Music and more, will foster learning, inspiration and wonder. How are Indian women and girls reshaping the future?
How does music bring about empowerment to the under priviledged classes? How do young men from slums and local communities break age-old traditions of leading violent lives and transform themselves into model citizens?
These are some of the stories at this year's TEDxPune conference highlighting Indian men and women becoming change agents, inventors and idea champions - bringing about mind shifts in various fields including education,space program, medicine, scientific and mathematical research.
