Ideas Worth Spreading

TED is a non-profit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a conference in California 32 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with many initiatives. At a TED conference, the world's leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less. 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. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

TEDxAUBG is a student club founded in 2012 by a group of idea seekers from the American University in Bulgaria. Each spring we organize a TED-like conference where we gather speakers from all around the world. We celebrate human ingenuity by exploring ideas, innovation, and creativity through mind-shifting talks. Our goal is to disconnect from the noise, connect with each-other and spark conversations, build relationships, and share insights.

The Event

Every truth has multiple dimensions

In times when every truth has multiple dimensions and our strive for innovative ideas is bigger than ever, TEDxAUBG is here to make room for the real truth-tellers and change seekers. TEDxAUBG: Elusive Truth will be held on April 13 at the Dr. Carl Djerrasi Theater Hall (ABF Student Center, Blagoevgrad). In our eighth year, we will once again bring together a unique blend of local, regional and global speakers - each selected by our team to inspire, inform and provoke. We'll include critics and skeptics, but also the quiet heroes driving ideas we can rally around. And through it all, we'll seek an exciting and insightful way forward. The event will start at 11:00am and continue until the late afternoon with a lunch and a coffee break.
