SOARING HIGH: IDEAS SCALING NEW HEIGHTS

"The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight,
but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night."- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

About

TEDx, x = independently organized event

TED

TED is a nonprofit organisation devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics - from science to business to global issues - in more than 100 languages. TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.

TEDx

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 TEDxXLRI, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxXLRI event, TEDTalks 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.

Event

Future is restricted only by the realms of our imagination. All through the history, the people who dared to dream, who refused to give up and pushed the limits of what is possible while actively chasing the impossible are the ones who are adored as pioneers. As Henry says, great people reach great heights, not because they are born great but because of the passion burning within them which spurs them on to the soaring heights.

In this edition of TEDxXLRI with the theme as Soaring Heights, we would be showcasing individuals who transcended the norm to achieve the impossible. We are looking at trailblazers who are actively redefining the limits of what is achievable. With a wide array of speakers we aim to inspire the student community to pursue greatness, do the unthinkable. Sky is not the limit to the committed mind!
