What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxUCL, where x = independently organised TED event. At our TEDxUCL 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-organised.



TED Circles hosted by TEDxUCL is an open community of small groups that discuss big ideas. Hosted by volunteers, Circles discuss a TED Talk about a monthly theme, the climate crisis (Countdown) or issues of urgent importance (Here and now). By considering each other’s perspectives, they create a global conversation

Salon Events

Salon events are often small weekly or monthly events that keeps a TEDx community engaged between regular TEDx events. It’s a unique kind of gathering that TEDx organisers hold which allows the conversation to continue, in person.


Our Studio initiative produces standalone TEDx talks unaffiliated with an in-person or virtual TEDx event.
