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. Our event is called TEDxYouth@DPSMIS, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxYouth event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine 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.

Principal's Message

Dear Students,
“The greatest deception men suffer is from their own opinions”, said Leonardo da Vinci. The students of DPS MIS not only helped themselves decoding their deceptions but also made us overcome our apprehensions, taking up the charge of TEDx platform. Born four years back reinforcing the thought in us “You are never too old to set another goal or... to dream a new dream”, the TEDx stage has glorified itself in themost extraordinary manner, subjugating the fear within, challenging its own challenges, expanding its boundaries and outshining. I congratulate all the students who stand as a TEDx unit, conceiving, executing and making the plan work out successfully every time, all on their own, thereby facilitating themselves chiselling their entrepreneur skills, inculcating self-discipline working within timelines, enriching themselves with added sense of responsibility.
TEDx provides our students with a platform to enhance their skill set of formulating ideas, public speaking, convincing the audience and setting stage on fire through their personality, providing a holistic growth taking a step towards being a global citizen by inspiring and getting inspired. The journey so far has been a captivating and enthralling one.
May this charisma grow each year!

Lead Organiser's Message

It brings me the greatest happiness to witness the official commencement of the fourth edition of the TEDxYouth@DPSMIS series. Seeing the event and its making take off truly does put matters into perspective. It is the ultimate privilege to serve as the Lead Organizer of the 2018 event along with my talented Executive Team. My vision for the event is simple: To challenge the youth of Qatar through ideas.... With the theme of our event being set as ‘Decoding Deceptions’, I would like to take a moment to reiterate that it is critical to stop pandering to the mainstream narrative. With the rapid progression of social media as a staple source of information, it is imperative to spread the message of critical thinking and individuality among the youth of Qatar.
The 2018 event marks our 4th edition in the TEDxYouth@DPSMIS series. It is with great gratitude that we stand to be the longest running TEDxYouth event in Qatar. It is only fair to say that this event would not have been possible without the support of our Management, our Principal, Ms. Asna Nafees, our Headmistress, Ms. Soma Bhattacharjee, and the numerous other key individuals who have guided us along the road. The support for our event has been overwhelming and is truly appreciated. It only gets more exciting from here.
So, whether you’re a speaker, volunteer, or participant, I hope to see you all on November 13, to witness history in the making.
