Welcome To TEDxSMIT
TEDxSMIT first came in the limelight with the success of "TEDxSMIT:Freedom meets courage". Being our very first TEDx conference and the first TEDx event organised in Sikkim. The organising team, consisting entirely of students from Sikkim Manipal Institute of Technology (SMIT) and with the constructive support of the college alumni cell were able to organise two such successful conferences in past two years and hold pride for it.
Our focus is looking forward, keeping in mind the originality of TED theme "Ideas worth sharing".
TEDxSMIT aspire to achieve the same formula by encouraging new ideas, holding the objective of acquainting a phenomenally enthusiastic new generation of dreamers into a world that is eagerly waiting to be astonished. Gargantuan number of individuals at young decides to give up on their dreams because they are accused for being impractical if not ridiculed straight away but we believe that no matter where or who you are, your dreams equally are valid and nothing but stardust for the world we live in.
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world's leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED's media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSMIT, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSMIT event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
