A TEDx event is a local gathering where live TED-like talks and videos previously recorded at TED conferences are shared with the community. This year the student councils of both the Graduate School of International Management and Graduate School of International Relations have collaborated to organize the first TEDx event in IUJ, an independently organized event. In accordance with the TED spirit of “ideas worth sharing”, TEDxIUJ was held at IUJ for the first time on 22nd of April, 2018.
The theme of the first TEDxIUJ “Where the World Gathers” was chosen as a tribute to the slogan of IUJ and also, to commemorate the unique global environment of IUJ.
The highlight of TEDxIUJ was unquestionably its eight amazing speakers. The speakers consisted of one faculty member Professor Mohammed Ahmed (Bangladesh), and IUJ students Abdel Ghader Khdeim (Mauritania), Dennis Nyaga (Kenya), Ikhlosiddin Urmanov (Uzbekistan), Ismail Chbouk (Morocco), Mariam January (South Africa), Michael Bosack (USA), and Shuntaro Hiura (Japan).
