On January 29th 2015, TEDxYPU will be held in “Damascus University” auditorium, Damascus, Syria under the theme "Ideas Out of the Box".
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.
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.
TEDxYPU will include 10 talks in one day, each of it has a duration of 18 minutes and more that 10 leading speakers and storytellers to create a platform to unleash the community’s potential and provide community members with opportunities to spread their ideas and share success stories. The audience will be made up of students, entrepreneurs, innovators, industry leaders, and change makers.
