TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxChulalongkornU, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxChulalongkornU event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

TEDxChulalongkornU is an independently organized TEDx event by Chulalongkorn students. We aim to echo the fascinating stories, ideas, talents, and passions of those who have successfully found their paths, and perhaps remind us, the pillars of the kingdom, that we can create positive impacts to the society in countless number of ways possible.
