Tbilisi will host the first ever TEDx event in Georgia – TEDxTbilisi on February 11. TEDxTbilisi 2012 will be held at Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University.

TEDxTbilisi will bring speakers to the stage who can inform, illuminate and inspire with their ideas. The theme for TEDxTbilisi 2012 is The Long View. Renowned representatives of Georgian scientific, diplomatic and arts circles will deliver their own presentations.

Tbilisi, a city with 1500+ years of recorded history, is currently going through a dynamic and exciting time of growth and change. New buildings, new shops, new ideas appear – seemingly on a daily basis.  To help find perspective, the first ever TEDxTbilisi will open minds to new ways to find balance, or create links, between the far and the near of both time and place.

The main goal of TEDxTbilisi is to expose Georgia’s role globally in different spheres and to inspire incentives for future.

Among the specially invited guests are the Director of Georgian National Museum David Lortkipanidze and Diana Janse is the Swedish ambassador to Georgia.

“Georgia is further developing its cultural, social and economic trends and proves to be  an interesting and impressive country to the rest of the world. TEDxTbilisi is the best way to once again remind people that beyond everyday worries there is The Long View,” declared  Deborah Fairleb, one of the organizers of TEDxTbilisi.

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives.

The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and Gordon Brown.

Two major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Long Beach, California (along with a parallel conference, TEDActive, in Palm Springs), and TEDGlobal is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.

TEDs media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily; the new TED Conversations, enabling broad conversations among TED fans; and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide.

TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.

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. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
