TEDGlobal is one of TED’s annual conferences. It has been held in Oxford, UK, in 2005, 2009 and 2010, and in Arusha, Tanzania, in 2007. TEDGlobal is now held annually in Edinburgh, UK, each summer. The themes of the global conference are somewhat more international in nature, but the full TED format is upheld.
TED is a nonprofit organization dedicated to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment and Design. Since then its scope has become ever wider. Along with two annual conferences, namely the TED Conference on the West Coast each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Edinburgh UK each summer. TED features the esteemed TED Talks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.
TEDGlobal offers a wide-ranging list of speakers and performers over 4 days of TED main-stage sessions and the famous TED University, where attendees share their own knowledge with one another.
We are in the midst of a global remix. Disciplines merge and cross-pollinate. Technology intrudes into biology and society. Power and authority are redistributed. Boundaries shift — or disappear. Hopes and anxieties collide. A new world is emerging at the intersection of once-separated realities, and everything we think we know might just be wrong. TEDGlobal 2013 will bring together those who challenge us to pause for an instant and Think Again.
TEDGlobal 2013 takes place in Edinburgh, Scotland, June 10-14, 2013.
