What is TEDx ?
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, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x stands for independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.


TEDxAUK was formed by a group of young individuals,students of the A.U.K., to help spread awareness and allow leaders and thinkers from Kosovo and the region to speak up to our fellow students and present to them ideas put into practice. This group comes from varying academic, cultural and professional backgrounds and varying age groups with the same goal in mind. Our purpose here is to show our fellow students that we can only move forward at this time in our lives through long term-looking perspectives and inspiration-fed actions in all fields of life regardless of the areas of interest. TEDxAUK is a student-led, collaborative experience that inspires innovative thinking, moving others to purposeful action. We wish to promote collaboration between the students, faculty and administrations of A.U.K. We also aim to foster the ideas of TED, “believing passionately in the power of ideas to change attitude, lives and ultimately, the world.” Our goal is to promote A.U.K as an innovative and collaborative institution of higher education that maintains discipline and promotes creative and critical thinking beyond its class curricula. We anticipate that our independent TEDx event will leave an impact on the A.U.K community and the broader Kosovo society by fostering diversity, collaboration, and the distinct values from this unique experience.

TEDxAUK event theme is X marks the spot

As a phrase said when someone finds something he/she has been looking for, “X marks the spot” is the map to understanding one’s inner voice, realize the power of one’s own dreams and the vast possibilities for one to bring up great things in the community and worldwide. TEDxAUK, therefore, is a unique opportunity for members of the A.U.K. and region community to share their ambitions for our collective future. Speakers will present their forward-thinking ideas and all participants will leave the conference inspired and empowered to effect positive change towards their own X, that is, the ideas that they have and goals they want to achieve for the world.
