About TEDxUofT
In the spirit of Ideas Worth Spreading, TEDxUofT is designed to gather the brightest minds in the University of Toronto community to spark conversation and connection. Through our main conference and bite-sized salon events, our team aims to continually grow a platform of free knowledge and entertainment. With some of the world’s most inspired thinkers and a community of curious souls, join us in our 7th year as we continue to engage with ideas and with each other.
TEDx
The TEDx initiative grants free licenses to people around the world to organize TED-style events in their communities, share talks from the official conference and listen to live speakers. Talks from these events are recorded and turned into TEDxTalks videos, uploaded to the official TEDxTalks YouTube channel.
TED
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. What started as a single conference in California in 1984 has grown into a global initiative to create platforms for sharing world-changing ideas. At a TED conference, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less.
