TEDxTISS is an independently organized TED event, focused on bringing speakers and participants together for sharing ideas.
We believe that thoughts and ideas coupled with energy can transform lives and eventually the world.
Theme: On the continuum
Something that keeps on going, changing gradually, like a continuum of the four seasons. As nature changes from autumn to spring, blossoming into something beautiful by a continuous process of efforts and progress. Continuum suggests the changes that constantly take place around us. It shows the nature of the change which needs to happen for a sustained life.
We at TEDxTISS, wants to bring forward and showcase the ones who brought about this change by invigorating an idea worth taking forward and making that the aim of their lives, in the process achieving something which no one has achieved earlier.
