At A Crossroads


Our Talks


About

ABOUT TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. It is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world.

ABOUT TEDx

The TEDx Program is designed to help communities, organizations and individuals to spark conversation and connection through local TED-like experiences. At TEDx events, a screening of TED Talks videos — or a combination of live presenters and TED Talks videos — sparks deep conversation and connections at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently, under a free license granted by TED.

What is TEDxSomaiyaVidyavihar?

TEDxSomaiyaVidyavihar is an independently organised TED-like event by the students of K.J.Somaiya College of Engineering and K.J.Somaiya Institute of Management Studies and Research. Our vision is to make TEDxSomaiyaVidyavihar a platform where community-driven people can showcase their ideas that will lead to a change in attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.

Theme : At a Crossroads

We, as a civilization, stand at a very crucial juncture that will decide the future for generations to come. It is at junctions like these that ideas take shape and kickstart the transition to a better future. Innovative and groundbreaking solutions do not emerge on plain sailing paths, but on paths that are inundated with difficulties and challenges. The theme not only focuses on an individual’s decision but also encompasses a broader perspective. Through our platform at TEDxSomaiyaVidyavihar, we aim to share ideas that have had far reaching effects and inspire the audience to cultivate novel thinking.
