  • ABOUT TEDxTodai

    We at TEDxTodai believe in the power of “ideas worth spreading.” As the first TEDxUniversity event in Japan, our vision was to create the foundation for a collegiate TEDx environment in our nation. Now, with many other institutions joining our side and sharing our dream, we wish to serve as a platform to amplify the voices of our student and alumni community. We are enraptured by the TEDx manifesto, and want nothing more than to contribute to the ever-progressing globalization of innovation. We believe in the power of our students to make a real change in the world.
    The theme for TEDxTodai 2013 is “Composing Our World.” Unique approaches to problems are instrumental in bringing about innovative solutions. By thinking of and sharing the ways in which we compose our respective perspectives, we hope to cultivate and nurture the seeds of new breakthroughs across all walks of life.

    About TEDx, x = independently organized event

    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, 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 TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] 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 TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

    About TED

    TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Two major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Long Beach, California (along with a parallel conference, TEDActive, in Palm Springs), and TEDGlobal is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.

    TED’s media initiatives include, where new TEDTalks are posted daily; the new TED Conversations, enabling broad conversations among TED fans; and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide.

    TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
