TED is a non-profit global community, devoted to spreading ideas. It began as a single conference back in 1984, focusing on Technology, Entertainment and Design, and now encompasses almost all topics in more than 100 languages.

In addition to the main TED global events, independently-run TEDx events help share ideas around the world.
