About TEDxDili

Created in the spirit of TED’s mission, “ideas worth spreading,” TEDxDili is designed to highlight local and global ideas to catalyze collaboration within the Timorese community and the world at large. At our TEDxDili event, we combine a selection of TED talks and live speakers from any discipline--business, technology, science, humanities, development, entertainment, and design. 

TEDxDili was founded in 2015 and brings together a curated group of 200+ change-makers, innovators, and social pioneers who are part of a full day schedule of talks, performances, and interaction. 

TEDxDili is a community-driven endeavor. The speakers are not paid and the organizers are unpaid volunteers.


About 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=independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.

About TED

TED is a nonprofit 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. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
