TEDx Pune

 TEDx Pune is an independently organized TED event scheduled to happen on October 10th 2010 in Pune.

TEDx Pune will take ideas worth sharing from Pune to the world, bring the city together through a simultaneously shared TED-like experience using live webcasting at 50+ educational institutions and spread ideas worth sharing to inspire better cities and citizenship.

TEDx Pune is brought to the world by the Curator TEDx Pune along with Thought leaders and Philanthropists of Pune, Boards and CEO’s of Pune’s Companies, Educational Institutions, the TEDx Pune Team and the CIO Pune City.

Ideas worth spreading to inspire better cities and citizenship will be nominated and then voted on this site for fit to inspire citizenship, novelty and ability to go viral. Short listed speakers will present ideas at a pre-TEDx event. The most effective TEDx ideas will repeat at the TEDx Pune event in front of a live audience of the winners of the Inspire Pune Challenge.

You can participate in TEDx Pune by nominating and rating ideas worth spreading. Do participate in the Inspire Pune Challenge and submit your idea worth sharing. You may wish to browse and watch ideas inspiring better cities and citizenship from previous TED events.



TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It began in 1984 as an annual conference devoted to Technology, Entertainment and Design -- hence TED -- but TED's reach, and its scope, have become ever broader since then. TEDTalks cover science, arts, politics, global issues, architecture, music and more. Speakers come from a wide variety of communities and disciplines -- people like Bill Clinton, Nobel laureate Murray Gell-Mann, Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales, and Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page.

The TED Conference itself takes place in Long Beach each spring, with a simulcast event in Palm Springs. In 2009, we'll also host a summer conference in Oxford, UK, called TEDGlobal, as well as a conference in fall 2009 called TEDIndia, in Mysore, India. Anyone can apply to attend a TED Conference! If you want to come, apply for an invitation. More info here:
