TEDxChios is made up of 25+ volunteers with an inquiring spirit and with the mission to transmit the non-profit nature, voluntary value and innovative spirit of TED. Through talks from live speakers who want to share their ideas and thoughts with the public, TEDxChios aims to spark conversation, broaden mind and change the way we think about a better future for the island.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged. Today covers almost all topics, from science to business to global issues. TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.
The purpose of the lectures is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation in the communities that host TED.

TEDx brings the spirit of TED’s mission of ideas worth spreading to local communities around the globe. TEDx events are organized by curious individuals who seek to discover ideas and spark conversations in their own community. TEDx events include live speakers and are organized independently under a free license granted by TED. Each TEDx team operates independently from TED and its TEDx sister events in the same country and city.
