About TEDx SRM Kattankulathur
The world has not been the same since the dawn of the industrial revolution and it has been changing at a pace never witnessed before. From neo nationalism to international relations, from industry to culture, we have been advancing so rapidly that we may have not even realized it. Climate change, rise of new economies, advancements in clean energy, terrorism acceptance of new ideas and lifestyles into the mainstream media etc. have all played a major role in the development of a more global society. These are the topics that directly affect us in one way or the other, be it short term or in the long run.This edition of TEDxSRMKattankulathur focuses on how the changing world affects the lives of people.
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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, (x = independently organized TED event). The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized, (subject to specified rules and regulations).
TED is a nonpartisan non-profit organisation devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics in more than 110 languages from science to business to global issues. The idea of a TED talk is to share ideas and gather different opinions on matters that grip the society.
