TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) is a global set of conferences under the slogan “ideas worth spreading”.

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 TEDxBergen, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including TEDxBergen, are self-organized. At TEDxBergen TEDTalks video and live performances from speakers are combined to spark deep discussion among participants.
