About

TEDxFreiburg is a locally and independently organized event under a TED license in the green city Freiburg. TED and TEDx events are devoted to ideas worth spreading from every discipline. In this spirit our event will feature live speakers from a wide range of different fields and screenings of TED Talks.

Organized by highly motivated volunteers TEDxFreiburg doesn’t pursue any commercial goal. It is all about sharing ideas, provoking new thoughts, widening horizons. We want to create a platform in our hometown for thinkers, visionaries and all people who want to make a difference.

About TED

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, Nandan Nilekani, 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.
