In the spirit of ideas worth spreading

The exciting, the inspirational, the motivational and the uncommon is coming to Bucharest this fall. TEDxBucharest – UNCOMMON SENSE will take place on November 22nd. See you there!

While common sense is an ability to perceive and understand things shared to all people, there are those who IMAGINE MORE, SEE MORE and DO MORE.

There are the PEOPLE with an instinct for looking differently at the world. GAME CHANGERS that use available resources & passions for the good of many. INNOVATORS that regularly disrupt and celebrate each breakthrough.

These are all alchemists of the common. These are the individuals who transform societies. These are the revolutionaries that combat the preconceptions and update the traditional.

And they all have something in common: the Uncommon Sense.

What is 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 TEDxBucharest, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxBucharest 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.
