ABOUT TEDxCET

TEDxCET is an independently organised TED conference by the students of College of Engineering, Trivandrum. TEDxCET is another TEDx event, yes, but it’s also not. TEDxCET was last conducted in 2013 and this year it’s back with a fresh panel of speakers, ready to elevate your thinking to a higher level.

What we want to do is create an atmosphere of creativity and innovation; to create a unique forum where ideas and concepts can be visualised, discussed and taken forward.

Because, all it takes is one spark to start a wildfire. All it takes is one idea to start a revolution.

With a diverse line-up of speakers, TEDxCET is all set to be an incubator for ideas that will shape and change the world we know as of now.

THEME

In the spirit of 'ideas worth spreading', the second chapter of TEDxCET will be held under the guiding theme 'Ecdysis'. An effort to accomplish the importance of shedding off conventional thoughts and beliefs, TEDxCET wishes to inspire the common man to think for themselves, to question what happens around them and to create rather than follow.

TEDxCET is all about change.


To put it crudely, out with the old and in with the new. Our country is, for no doubt, blessed with the most beautiful heritage in the world but at the same time its systems, cultures and traditions in place are not flawless. The masses of our country are forced to follow what they are shown, believe what they are told and protect what others protect.

There is little room to realize ourselves, little room to express what we feel. We forget to unearth our inner potential, our deep passions but lull them to sleep within us. We are taught to ignore the atrocities that happen around us, to bury our conscience deep enough.

It is from these age-old frames of mind that we seek change and TEDxCET is all set with its panel of eminent speakers to bring it to us. The talks by speakers from various sections of the society will help us realise how some of our traditions crippled development and how Ecdysis can change our society. The sessions will also shed light on how we can accept change without fear and also discuss the many ways in which we can bring about change to our everyday lives.


Change laws. Change traditions. Change beliefs.

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, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. 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.
