TEDx KCG 'Ekavira - Be-Original, Be Different'

Wednesday, 29 February 2012 · 0 comments


TED is an annual event where some of the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are most passionate about. “TED” stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design – three broad subject areas that are collectively shaping our future And in fact the event is broader still, showcasing ideas that matter in any discipline. The diverse audience – CEOs, scientists, innovationalists, philanthropists – is almost as extraordinary as the speakers, who have included Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodal, Frank Gehry, Paul Simon, Sir Richard Branson, Philippe Starck and Bono.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At our TEDxKCG event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion. We hope to bring together some of the most distinguished individuals from our local community to share, inspire and demonstrate the power of original ideas. Our theme for this year is 'Ekavira: Be original. Be different.' where 'Ekavira' is Sanskrit for an Eminent person or hero.

HYLC aims to bring together outstanding young students from around the world to build critical leadership skills in a global context. HYLC will simulate some of the most important international bodies giving college students a unique chance to discuss and debate real-time problems in an energy-charged environment. Based on the concept of a Model United Nations, HYLC is a dynamic, vibrant and inspiring platform for creative solutions to challenges that face today's world leaders. Beyond developing the youngsters into great debaters, it will also enhance their knowledge, impel them to research and reflect on global issues, hone their use of diplomatic skills to negotiate and persuade and above all empower them to become effective leaders wherever they go.

 The host institution, KCG College of Technology, a unit of the Hindustan Group of Institutions, was founded in 1998. The beautifully landscaped campus, spread over 50 acres at Karapakkam, is about 10 km from Adyar on the Old Mahabalipuram Road, the IT corridor of Chennai. Through the years, KC Tech has conducted various international and national conferences for academics as well as intercollegiate technical symposiums for students. The college seeks to produce graduates who will think innovatively, communicate effectively, act ethically and participate meaningfully in a rapidly changing world.

As may be observed, all the crucial areas of economy, foreign policy, cyber space, and environment will be analyzed during the three days of HYLC. Many of these councils are being simulated for the first time in India and we expect intense and lively debates during these sessions.
