TedxAalto – ideas worth spreading.
TEDxAaltoUniversity, or TEDxAalto, started less than a year ago in the middle of Atlantic Ocean. It was held on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship as 110 members of the Aalto community travelled to Brazil. The first event was part of a student-driven innovation project called Aalto on Waves. Our second event, TEDxLive, was held in February 2012 at Aalto Design Factory. Nearly 200 enthusiastic participants watched the live stream from the TED conference in California. According to the main devotion of TED, our vision is to share ideas worth spreading both inside the university and between the university and society.
TED is a 26-year-old non-profit organization build onto their four-day conferences in California. TEDxAaltoUniversity is part of the TEDx program, which is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event live speakers and TEDTalk videos combine to inspire to deep discussions. These local events are branded TEDx, where x equal’s independently organized TED event.
Now we are happy to announce that the first TEDx event with speakers in Finland is held in cooperation with MoA’12.
