TEDxLondon relies on a core team of volunteers and a wider group of volunteers on the day for each event. If you’re dedicated to the TEDx mission and want to give your time to create our events and build our community, we want to hear from you.
TED is the big brother in the family: it began in 1984 as a conference where technology, entertainment and design came together, and today covers almost all topics – from science to business to global issues – in more than 100 languages.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED created a programme called TEDx. TEDx events are independently organised and surface ideas about communities. They are true to the TED mission, as non-profit organisations devoted to spreading ideas. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx programme, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organised. This video adds some colour to the explanation.
TEDxLondon is the version of TEDx dedicated to surfacing hidden stories of London and Londoners. It’s run entirely by volunteers who do it for the joy of it, fuelled by snacks and support and your ongoing feedback.
