TEDx UNN holds on 1st July, 2017

TEDxUNN Banner1

TEDx UNN
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 was created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading.” It supports independent organizers who want to create a TED-like event in their own community.
Our event is called TEDxUNN, where x = independently organized TED event. This is the first ever TEDx event in UNN. At our TEDxUNN 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 TED program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
This independent TEDx event is operated under license from TED.
Date: Sat. July 1st 2017
Venue: Niger Hall, University Guest House, UNN
Time: 08:00 am prompt
