This event is invite-only.

As a school, we believe that being literate is not enough for our kids. We are educators and education is dynamic, ever changing. Our goal has been to help people excel in life, personal and professional. TED is a perfect platform that inspires everyone, people of all ages, gender, cast, creed and schools of thought. There something for everyone here. It comprehensively fits in our agenda to spread knowledge, equip young people with tools to succeed, grow and be happy in life.

So, when we thought about organising our own TEDx event, it was a no brainer. This first ever TEDx event at St. Edmund's School Malviya Nagar, Jaipur: TEDxStEdmundsSchool marks the birth of a new culture in our community. Hence we are calling it the GENESIS of a new era.
