About TEDxFUTA


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED 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 TEDxFUTA, where x = independently organized TED event. At the TEDxFUTA event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion under the theme of "WHAT NEXT?". The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including Federal University of Technology Akure, are self-organized.

"TEDxFUTA"; independently organized TED, aims to properly and accurately share insightful cross-disciplinary knowledge. Conversations around this theme will separate, investigate and question the next step. Whether in tech or business, in the health sector or in academia, we hope that conversations created at TEDxFUTA: What Next will be pivotal towards triggering ideas and innovating solutions that are simple and specific, across different societal constructs.
