TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

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.)

UP Los Baños, or simply Elbi, is a public research university which

fosters not only education but also a diverse culture of contrasting and 

collaborating minds. A center of Ideas worth spreading. 




Deviate believes that ideas beyond the status quo are worth spreading and understanding. Going beyond the norms can help us bridge the gap to help us find innovative solutions to our problems. Deviate allows us to embrace realities and ideas that have not been explored, encouraging diverse people to speak out.
