TED is a global foundation devoted to “Ideas Worth Spreading”. It started out in 1984 as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment and Design. Since then, its scope has become ever broader and its reach has spread throughout numerous fields of great interest. TED is now a platform and a global movement focused on sparking meaningful change through the power of ideas. It is a clearinghouse for free knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most innovative thinkers, yet it also a community of valuable individuals eager to engage in constructive conversations.
