In 2009 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 TEDxSittardGeleen, where “x” means: independently organized TED event. At our main TEDxSittardGeleen event live speakers, TEDTalks via video and entertainers will spark deep discussion, foster innovation and connection in our audience.
The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. Our team works with a lot of volunteers who all support TEDs motto “ideas worth spreading”.
Other TEDx events in Sittard-Geleen will be TEDxSittardGeleenYouth and several TEDx pitch events.
