TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes.
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 a TEDx event, TEDTalks videos and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
TEDx Phnom Penh is a TEDx event that will combine live speakers with TED video screenings and discussions over the course of a day. At this stage, we are planning to hold the event in February 2011.
TEDxPP is hosted by a team of representatives from the NGO and private sector, all of who have an interest in giving voice to dynamic individuals whose ideas are ‘worth spreading’.
