What is TED? 

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, TED, converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events, like TEDxDecaturPublicLibrary, help share ideas in local communities around the world.

What is TED’s Mission? Spread ideas

Just think… Decatur is a part of a global community. With TED, we are welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. Like TED, we believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. TED is building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world’s most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long. Our Decatur and surrounding community is a part of it!

TED is owned by a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation. Their agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation. TEDxDecaturPublicLibrary welcomes you to hear these great ideas and be a part of the conversation it sparks!

This Is Us: The Stories of Humanity – Part 1

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, TED Talks 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).
