About TEDx

x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations).


We have been forced to stop our lives for 12 months until now, obliged to live with ourselves, facing the insecurities that the ever changing world poses in front of us. Some of us are hoping to come back to normality, others have given up to the new reality we are living in, others just put their lives on stand-by. With this event we want to discuss, recharge our batteries, learn and build a new normality which starts from the well-being of individuals, from the awareness that each of us counts and can make a difference. One year after the first lockdown ever, the young community is still animated by a strong desire of changing the reality, and the aim of this event is to bring together individuals whose actions and ideas offer recharging and new perspectives on the world.
The theme of the fourth edition of TEDxLuiss will be RECHARGE.
