TEDx-ULahore


The University of Lahore organized TEDx - uLahore.

In the spirit of "ideas worth spreading," TED has created TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDx ULahore, where x = independently organized TED event. At TEDx ULahore, TEDTalks video and live speakers combined to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

TEDx ULahore was a project taken by Quality Enhancement Cell (QEC) at The University of Lahore (UOL) intended to bring the TED to UOL. TED event was held on 26th of April, 2014 at Defence Road Campus of UOL. TEDx ULahore is staging the biggest event UOL had organized.

The purpose of this event was to expand people’s horizons and get them to ‘fall in love’ with learning and talking about ideas that they would never normally come across. TEDx Ulahore was not only attended by UOL’s students & Faculty but also renowned scholars and artists of Pakistan.

Curator of the aging Fakir Khana Mr. Fakir Syed Saif Ud Din, An eminent artist Mr. Usman Peerzada, Social Development Activist, Mr. Ali Akbar, Electronica Music Producer/ Artist Mr. Talal Qureshi, Gender Program head at Bytes for all Ms. Gul Bukhari, Project Engineer at DESCON Engineering Limited Mr. Bilal Bashir and Manager of Pakistan Biotechnology Information Center, Muhammad Adeel were the guest speakers at TEDx ULahore.
