What is TEDx? In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx – local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At TEDx event, TEDTalks videos 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.
TEDxAmman 2012 is themed City2.0 this year; A day of urban inspiration. Taking place on Saturday, October 13, 2012, TEDxAmman 2012 along with TEDx communities around the world will host an event to share the powerful narratives of urban innovators and organizers, stewards and artists, builders and tastemakers. The TEDx platform will harness the power of people across the globe to portray myriad stories framing a picture of the city -- a place more playful, more safe, more beautiful, and more healthy for everyone!
