TEDxRUPP event will be held for the second year running on Sunday, 27th of December, 2020 from 1 pm to 5 pm in Phnom Penh around the theme “Significance of the Insignificance.”
TEDxRUPP President Meily TE wants to convey a message to public that everyday habits or activities, no matter how big or small have a major impact towards self-development and society. With the theme “Significance of the Insignificance”, we want the people to think about their life how and what they do affects many other things not just themselves. She also wants to highlight the beauty behind the curtain, how little ideas or movements can make greater ripple effects.
The event is independently produced and operated under an official license from TED by a group of dedicated youth volunteers from various universities and is aimed at building community and creating dialogue as well as giving people a platform to share their great ideas passions, and experiences. The event is proudly sponsored by Smart Axiata, True Money, IZE Cola, Foodpanda, Manulife, Nano Sounds, Brew Coffee, Tino the Coffee Yard and CO-Creative Corner. This event is also supported by Sabay, Ahladang, Bizkhmer, Focus Cambodia, OMOHub, the Desk, Factory Phnom Penh and Koompi.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
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, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. 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.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or fewer) delivered by today’s leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED’s annual conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, and made available, free, on TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
TED’s open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include TED.com, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily; the TED Translators Program, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from thousands of volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed; the annual million-dollar TED Prize, which funds exceptional individuals with a “wish,” or idea, to create change in the world; TEDx, which provides licenses to thousands of individuals and groups who host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
