TEDxNYUAD aspires to create a platform on which our students can showcase their innovative ideas, achievements and struggles to Abu Dhabi and beyond.
About Our Theme: Bookmarks
We all have bookmarks in our lives – they could be events, people, ideas, relationships, challenges or achievements. Our speakers for this edition of the conference will share some of these bookmarks with you with the hope that they may inspire others.
TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On TED.com, we’re building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world’s most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long.
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. The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, under a free license granted by TED.
We're excited to introduce our speakers! Meet the people that are going to make TEDxNYUAD 2018 worth bookmarking!
