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 TEDxTheOrchidSchool, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxTheOrchidSchool event, TED Talk videos 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.
Millennials : Fidget Spinners Or Game Changers
Millennials today, might just be the most misunderstood generation. Fear of making the wrong choices and disapproval from older generations, has brought about new anxieties and apprehensions among them. They strive to achieve a work life balance, are passive-aggressive in voicing their opinions, yet stand their ground. Our TEDx event has speakers from different walks of life: a behaviour analyst, a career diplomat of the Indian Foreign Service, an educationalist, an occupational therapist, and a spiritual leader, to guide the millennials to deal with the competition in a healthy manner, without it affecting their emotional and mental health. We wish to not only understand the challenges faced by the millennials, but also help them navigate the future course of life.
