Chavan Auditorium. At TEDxNarimanPoint ideas were shared by eminent speakers on ways to transform the educational landscape in India and beyond. The speakers came from varied backgrounds of being educators themselves, social entrepreneurs in the education sector, policy makers, leaders in CSR etc. to present a view of the concerted effort required to change the educational landscape of a country.
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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. 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)
