TED is an annual event where some of the world's leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are most passionate about. "TED" stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design -- three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping our future. TED is owned by a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation, and is devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less).
Evolving out of the success of TED, TEDx was created in 2009 in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading." It empowers independent organizers to bring a TED-like experience under a free license granted by TED. Just like in TED conferences, ideas are spread in the TEDx conferences in the suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances that are idea-focused, and cover a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter.
TEDx SBSC is an independently organised TED event and will be the second edition for Shaheed Bhagat Singh College. It is one of the flagship TEDx events in the Delhi-NCR region, where “x” means: independently organized TED event. We unite the community of Shaheed Bhagat Singh College through the power of ideas. Staffed and run entirely by students under the guidance of our faculty who are there to support us at every step, we aim to showcase the biggest ideas in the University on the world's biggest platform.
Like last year, TEDxSBSC aims to bring the best in the community, to their people and give them the spotlight they have earned to share their story with us. We strongly believe that the right change in the thinking can only be brought on by the growth of everyone together, learning from each other.
Shaheed Bhagat Singh College, named after the great son of India, Shaheed-e-Azam, Sardar Bhagat Singh, was established as a coeducational college in 1967 as a constituent college of University of Delhi.

It has a legacy of excellence in both academics as well as extra-curricular activities which attracts the sharpest minds from the student community to take admission here, making it a leading educational institution of the country as well as one of the top colleges of the University of Delhi
