【What’s TED?】

TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences -- the TED Conference on the West Coast each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Edinburgh UK each summer -- TED includes the award-winning TED Talks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize.

【What’s TEDx?】

TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." The program is designed to give communities, organizations and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. At TEDx events, a screening of TEDTalks videos -- or a combination of live presenters and TEDTalks videos -- sparks deep conversation and connections. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis.

「価値あるアイディアを広めよう(Ideas Worth Spreading)」という理念の元、TEDは1984年にアメリカ西海岸でスタートしました。TEDの名称は「Technology」、「Entertainment」、「Design」の頭文字に由来し、これらの要素により新しい未来が形作られるという設立当初の予見に基づいています。現在ではあらゆる最先端のアイデアを発表するイベントとして、著名、無名を問わず、世界中から優れたアイデアを持つ人々を講演者に迎えた刺激的なイベントを毎年開催しており、世界中の教養人・リーダーたちから熱い支持を受けています。近年ではアメリカ元副大統領のアル・ゴア氏や、 マイクロソフト創業者ビル・ゲイツ氏による講演も行われました。「Ideas Worth Spreading」の思想を忠実に体現しながら、世界に最も影響を与えるイベントの一つとして、確固たる地位を築いています。詳しくは、TED.com(http://www.ted.com/ )をご覧下さい。


TEDxとは、TED同様「Ideas Worth Spreading」の価値観のもと、理念に賛同した各地域の意欲ある主催者によって、世界各都市で独自に開催されるイベントです。TEDxの「x」は、各地域で独自に運営されているTEDプログラムであることを意味し、TED本部から全体の方針は提供されるものの、それ以外のコンテンツは全て独自に作成されます。厳選された講演者による講演やTED Talksの鑑賞を中心としたプログラムを組み、新たな人々のつながりや熱い議論を生み出すことを目的としています。現在では、137か国、1400都市においてTEDxイベントが開催されています。TEDカンファレンスの魅力の一つである、参加者同士の新たな出会いや、議論を生み出し、人生を変えるような熱い体験を世界中で提供できるようにするために始まったのが、TEDxプログラムです。
