Established in 1984, TED is an annual event where some of the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are most passionate about. “TED” stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design —three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping our future. And in fact, the event is broader still, showcasing ideas that matter in any discipline. The diverse audience —CEOs, scientists, creatives, philanthropists. But, TED is about much more than famous names. It is about passion, laughter, beauty, ingenuity and ideas capable of changing the world.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDxUniversityofJohannesburg (TEDxUJ) is designed to serve the university community as a high-octane, community-driven, independently organized TED Talk, licensed by TED New York to be held at the University of Johannesburg (UJ). Our vision is to showcase the most fascinating thinkers and leaders at UJ who will get together for a stimulating day of presentations and conversations that will inspire new ideas and opportunities across all disciplines.
