What is TEDx?

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 TEDxAmbazariLake, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxAmbazariLake event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

What is TEDx Ambazari Lake?

Ideas Worth Spreading

History has been evident of the fact that Nagpur is a geographical Centre of India with ideas worth spreading! Ambazari Lake represents Nagpur and also throws light on how the city's lakes have now been diminishing.Ambazari Lake is an important tourist attraction in Nagpur. It is famous for being the largest lake in the city of Nagpur and is surrounded by mango trees, hence named as Ambazari. The name TED Ambazari Lake has thus been chosen to celebrate Nagpur, both with its virtues and vices! TEDx Ambazari Lake will give us an opportunity to create a truly unique event that will unleash new ideas, inspire and inform and will enable us in celebrating Nagpur and all it's availabilities.
