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.

TEDx is a grassroots initiative, created in the spirit of TED’s overall mission to discover and spread ideas that spark conversation, deepen understanding, and drive meaningful change.

TEDx brings the spirit of TED to local communities around the globe through TEDx events.

These events are organised by passionate individuals who seek to uncover new ideas and share the latest research in their local areas that spark conversations in their communities.

TEDx events include live speakers and recorded TED Talks, and are organised independently under a free license granted by TED.

In 2013, TEDx at Aston University, a student run committee and the first ever university TEDx in Birmingham was founded to conduct TED-like conferences with the aim of hosting annual conferences. ​

With an upcoming event in September 2024, TEDx at Aston University will continue with its legacy of organising events with powerful ideas as Ideas Change Everything.
