Our Mission

As a society, we aim to facilitate discussions through weekly sessions, workshops, live speakers and collaborations with other societies. Our society embodies TED’s core themes of innovation and inspiration.

Our aim is to unite the best and brightest minds to give talks on ideas from a multitude of topics, to foster creativity, curiosity and wonder – and provoke conversations and spark connections which matter.

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 TEDxNewcastleUniversity, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxNewcastleUniversity 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.
