TEDxKyotoUniversity is BACK!

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences.

At TEDx events, a screening of TED Talks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TED Talks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, under a free license granted by TED.


This year marks the second TEDxKyotoUniversity event! This October, our TEDx event will be held at the Kyoto University Museum, after which there will an extended night viewing of the Museum! We will be featuring 5 professional speakers and 1 student speaker. Applications for the student speaker are open on our website! If you have an idea worth spreading, or know someone who does, what are you waiting for? Head to our website and apply! Tickets will be available mid-October. You can find more details about our event bellow. Stay tuned for our weekly speaker reveals, interviews, and more! Our first speaker will be revealed next Monday!
