Being passionate about community building and about expanding our comfort zone, a group of soulful volunteers (= our team), decided to organize a powerful event that brings people together, opens up discussions, debates issues in our community and creates the path towards Change. TEDx is the simple way of storytelling organized by a fabulous team that believes in the power of ideas for a better future.


Our primary motivation is to build and organize an active and vigorous community. We believe that, thanks to TEDxUdvarhely and its inspiring, motivational and encouraging discussions and debates, we can achieve change in the community – with the members of this community.

In the spirit of the local, self-organized TEDx events we are convinced that ideas worth spreading take us to a better future. And we are sure that inspiring stories are around us, we just need to create the finest instruments and forums to spread these. TEDxUdvarhely is such an instrument and forum, that can widespread the values we, our community possesses.

Truth and dare

How much does truth worth in a world, where bit by bit the reality content of every spoken and written word can be called into question? Where the same reality is perceived and interpreted in four different ways by three people. Where the border between the freedom of expression and the practice of allegations is getting narrower and narrower, and fewer and fewer people understand that having the right to say something doesn’t mean that it’s an obligation to say it. What can be pronounced in this world, and what shouldn’t be withheld under any circumstances? Where does bravery begin: when we say out loud something in a crowd or when we whisper the exact opposite quietly?

Truth and dare: maybe old fashioned and trivial expressions that nowadays are hard to interpret, because they evoke a bygone era. But no matter how much the world has changed (in the past one year, ten years, one hundred years – feel free to choose), those who are responsible for the constant change of the world, are unchanged: truthful and brave. Regardless of how old they are, where they live, or what their activities are.

Truth or Dare – changing a bit the famous board game. In this game, the participants must choose whether to tell the truth OR do something brave. But we decided to change things a little bit. And instead of OR, we prefer AND. Because we think that honesty and courage don’t exclude each other, on the contrary. Together they are strong and they can make a change.

Meet our speakers

Our invited speakers fit into the spirit of ”Truth and Dare” with their stories. They weren’t afraid when the truth had to be told, and weren’t scared when actions were needed. They inspired many people not to settle for semi-compromises and fake solutions, but to dream big. And now we ask them to bring that inspiration to our community as well.

We are the team

The members of the TEDxUdvarhely organizing team are people for whom the simple BEING is not enough. They want MORE. For themselves and the community as well. Meeting point for different stories, with vivid histories and captivating ideas. In this hectic mixture we came together for one mutual GOAL: to stimulate thinking and interest. TEDxUdvarhely is initiated and coordinated by local volunteers, so the organizational work is realized not on an institutional, but community level.

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.)
