What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx.
TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
Our event is called TEDxYouth@YCISShanghai,
where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYouth@YCISShanghai event,
TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events,
including ours, are self-organized.
Welcome to the 2019 YCIS Shanghai, Innovation Expo and TEDx Event.
