TEDxLakhotaLake is an independently organized TED event operated under license from TED. Jamnagar as a city is growth at a fast pace and is making its presence felt in the globe. Jamnagar & its people are slowly but steadily uplifting the city from a Tier 3 Tag to Tier 2 & Tier 1 Tag. TEDxLakhotaLake is aimed to bring together the Ideas that are worth spreading and inspire people. The Team of Incredible people behind the stage enable this event to give Jamnagar and the world more ideas to think upon and be inspired. TEDx in Jamnagar has been a dream of the organisers since 3 Years and finally it has seen the light of the day. Jamnagar is also known by many names such as City of Temples, Choti Kashi, World’s Oil City, Brass City. The Marine National Park, the only marine sanctuary in India, is near Jamnagar, on the coral reef island of Pirotan. The Bala Hanuman Temple in Jamnagar is also very famous and is listed in The Guinness Book of World Records for the longest continuous chanting of “Ram Dhun” (since 1 August 1964). TEDxLakhotaLake is organized by an Incredible Team from various academic & cultural background.
In a city with such heritage and cultural values which has progressed tremendously in such a short span an event like TEDxLakhotaLake is just a cocoon. The Butterfly is yet to fly. TEDxLakhotaLake is back with a bang in 2018 with it’s second edition. Check out the TEDxLakhotaLake 2017 Event Page as well as TEDxLakhotaLake 2018 Event Page on TED Website.
x = independently organized 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.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
