TED is all about Ideas Worth Spreading. TEDxUlaanbaatar is an independently organized TED event, operated under license from TED worldwide. We are based in the capital city of Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar.

Our first event was held in August 2011 and was a landmark event - the first TEDx event ever held in Mongolia. We brought together some of the greatest minds and hearts from around the country, featured amazing speakers and performers, and inspired attendees, volunteers, and participants around the world. Our theme for TEDxUlaanbaatar 2011 was LEGACY: Honoring Tradition, Designing the Future.

Our speakers presented on topics ranging from Mongolian history to traditional intellectual puzzles, modern Mongolian hip-hop to timeless traditional music, and from the children of Ulaanbaatar’s streets to the country’s aggressive economic future. In our first TEDxUlaanbaatar event, we debutted Mongolia to the TED community, focusing on Mongolia’s rich past and promising future.

Our second annual event will be held in May 2012 and this year, we will look at Mongolia through a different lens. Our theme for TEDxUlaanbaatar 2012 is Beyond...

This year's event will look beyond today and toward tomorrow. Beyond plans and toward action. Beyond progress and toward sustainability. We want to know what is next for the economy, the environment, art, technology, and design in Mongolia.

We look forward to joining in this exciting vision with you. Thank you for visiting!
