TEDxPatras is organized by a team of volunteers whose aim is to create experiences that can alter, improve and enhance the way of thinking of both their peers and the society they live in.
TEDxPatras is a self-organized standard TEDx event and is is operated under license from TED since 2014.
TEDxPatras focuses on sharing thoughts and valuable experience from the fields of Science, Technology, Education, Entrepreneurship, Sports and Arts. The Talks will be held by people, who realize their dreams, overcome obstacles, surpass themselves, and evolve. Apart from the ideas worth spreading, TEDxPatras intends to trigger discussion and networking through Workshops and Live Broadcasting, that will be conducted in parallel with the main event.
Throughout the whole process of setting up the event, the value of volunteering and team spirit will be promoted, giving an opportunity for locals to be part of the experience of organizing and carrying out a TEDx 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)
