TEDxPodgorica is for Thinkers, Doers, Makers, Innovators, Explorers, and Visionaries. It’s the home of Teachers who are eager to bring ideas worth spreading and Learners who are ready to spread those ideas further but also to ACT towards the accomplishment of it.

We are focused on bringing on the stage speakers of varied backgrounds and experiences for inspirational and enlightening talks. Therefore TEDxPodgorica represents a meeting point for Students, Social activists, Musicians and Artists, Scientists, Entrepreneurs, NGOs, and anyone who is interested in creating a better future for our society.

The topic of TEDxPodgorica 2022 will be "Think globally act locally" as we want to bring awareness to different topics which we believe are important for talking about in our society. With this 2022 event, we want to inspire people to question the status quo. To act. And to change things locally.

We want to highlight the issues of our society but also to empower people to be doers and take initiatives. As Gandi said: "If you want to change the world, start with yourself."
