Ordinary People. Extra Ordinary Ideas.

A new upcoming event in December 4, 2010 at Islamabad.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event 
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani,Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in Oxford, UK. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world, and the TEDFellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.

About TEDx Margalla:
TEDxMargalla finds its name-origin from the beautiful hills of Margalla that surround the Capital from the North and, to date, have served much to the beauty and magnificent landscape of this city.The idea is simple, a platform where people with ordinary origins can come to share and collaborate parts of their extraordinary ideas to form the perfect blend of creation and art with brilliance. The ideas can be about anything from technology, entertainment and design to health, culture and sociology. The objective is to provide the audience with an experience so unique that its taste creates an insatiable hunger for knowledge and information.

The TEDxMargalla isn't just a platform to share ideas rather our aim is to hunt for and market solutions and cures for Pakistan that can help build up the economy as well as develop the minds of the people. Especially in a time when near one-fifth of the country is under heavy floods, we believe is the time to step up, as a nation, and help Pakistan with ideas, solutions and cures, may that be through our words or actions.
