Pre-Register for TEDxColombo 2018

Work on putting together TEDxColombo 2018 has started. If you want to get all the updates on TEDxColombo 2018 directly to your inbox, then pre-register here. 

TEDxColombo was formed by a group of young individuals to help spread awareness and allow our leaders and thinkers to have a stage to make a difference and speak out their ideas. This group comes from varying backgrounds and varying age groups with the same goal in mind. We are here to show our people that we can only move forward at this time in our lives. The TEDx format fulfils this aim by being a globally recognized platform that allows local ideas to flourish.

I, You, We

This year’s TEDxColombo is about sparking an actionable understanding of identity and how it can be used as a tool for building empathy, trust, and solidarity within and across cultures. While we imagine individually, it’s time we crafted the ideas born of those musings, communally. This is the calibre of collaborative ‘community’ we wish to create for the future of Sri Lanka. There are magnificent things happening all around us through ordinary people, everyday visionaries who dream as easily as they breathe – and these are the stories we want to tell. With this year’s theme ‘I, You, We’ we want to inspire, to trigger a calling for an entire country to unite through the power of unconventional perspectives and unrelenting passions, and to begin building the future we aspire to live in.

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 called TEDxColombo, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxColombo event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

Very inspiring & I really enjoy it. The best thing is u let us to get to know those amazing speakers after the occasion. Awaiting for the next year Ted talk at Colombo.

TEDx is a platform for new and innovative thinking, also sometimes a space where things right in front of our face are made clear to us. Im huge follower of TED talks online, and was highly taken up by the quality of the production and talks delivered at this years TEDx Colombo, it was indeed a refreshing and eye opening session, which I would want more people to experience. May I suggest though maybe having a session in the future in Galle or Kandy.

As a first-timer at Ted-X, I found that the event was well managed and organized, and the speakers themselves were extremely engaging. Each speaker eloquently spoke of their areas of interest and experiences that showcased their talents – some well known, and other new views that were thought provoking. All in all, TED-X has broadened by scope of knowledge, and that is why I would
recommend others to come enjoy the proceedings as well! 🙂
