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 a University event called TEDxUniversityofSalford, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
This will be the first TEDx event to be held at the University of Salford, and we hope that we can create an annual event that will employ the skills of students from all faculties and disciplines. We are hoping that our event will meet the principal goal of TEDx events, which are to spread ideas that are worth sharing.
