TEDxPortHarcourt is part of the global community of TED (“Technology, Entertainment, Design”). It is entirely volunteer-run & volunteer-supported. It is a community of like-minded individuals passionate about reshaping their immediate environment. Port Harcourt is the perfect breeding place for powerful ideas. That is why Port Harcourt and TEDx is a great and wise combination. Over the past 9 years, TEDxPortHarcourt has become an integral and inseparable part of the city. To celebrate our 10th anniversary , we are pleased to announce our theme for TEDxPortHarcourt 2022 : “Ones and Zeros” – a conversation on multiple truths.
TED is a non-profit organisation 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.
