There needs to be a new way of considering the engineering profession. Philippe is an engineering student at Imperial College, and believes there is a real need for engineers to actively participate in global debates, and to develop the ability to communicate the innovations they produce.
This new way of thinking comes in the context of a world with increasing demand for local-scale engineering and solutions that can be applied everywhere.
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)
