Can’t wait for TED’s 2014 conference? Guess what – we are bringing two sessions straight from Vancouver to Krakow on March 19 long before they’re available on TED. com!

TED’s 30th anniversary conference is set to better understand how the most significant developments from the last 30 years will shape our future.   “The Next Chapter” brings some of the most intriguing speakers of all time to TED’s main stage as well as to five special All-Stars sessions during which these speakers will expand on their ideas and join audience in breakout groups for further discussions. TEDxKraków will stream two of the sessions on Wednesday, March 19. In addition, in the spirit of bringing positive change to our local community, we also prepared some fun activities for Wednesday’s afternoon.

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.

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.


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 TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] 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.
