TEDx Shiv Nadar University 2021

Students of Shiv Nadar University, Delhi-NCR invite you to TEDxShivNadarUniversity on 14 November, 2021. Like every year, the team has worked hard to get myriad ideas to the stage of Shiv Nadar University, Delhi-NCR.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

Our event is a culmination of months of student-led efforts. An official audience of 100 people (as per TED guidelines) attends the event. The audience is an amalgam of students, academicians, sponsor delegates, corporate professionals and more.

Conference Theme
The theme of our conference this year is Rewire. To rewire is to innovate in one's field, to introspect and overcome internal biases and think differently, and to think of ways to change society as we know it. Rewire is as much an audience's theme as ours - its interpretation is up to them, as well.
