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 TEDxWesternU, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxWesternU event, TEDTalks 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.

TEDx 2023 : The Butterfly Effect

In 1963, Edward Lorenz, a mathematician and meteorologist, pioneered the Chaos Theory. According to his ideas, the flapping of a butterfly's wings might cause minute changes in the atmosphere, which could alter, delay, accelerate, or even prevent the occurrence of a tornado. Thus, was born the term "Butterfly Effect", the theme for TEDxWesternU 2023. “The Butterfly Effect” is a philosophy that a small change can have a profound global effect. Simple but powerful, it illustrates the power of our own hands to bring about meaningful change in our communities. As part of our TEDxWesternU event, scheduled for January 27th, 2023, we will explore opportunities for impact and inspire our audience to reflect on the future they are creating. What is your butterfly effect?
