The TEDx program enables independent organizers to create a TED-like experience. TEDxNITTrichy
, conceptualized within the walls of the National Institute of Technology, Tiruchirappalli, strives to provide a platform to the unheard of the local community. Through the past two editions, it has grown to encompass the campus and the city. Having Challenged Conventions in its debut, the second edition explored the concept of Seven Billion & You. The student organizers work round the year for the one-day event as well as other initiatives. The theme of the upcoming edition of TEDxNITTrichy is Mosaic.
