TEDxUniversityofPiraeus is an independently organized event by the students of University of Piraeus. The team consists of active and highly ambitious individuals who aim to promote the core driver behind TED, ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’.The driver behind this motive is to encourage the students of University of Piraeus to reevaluate their goals in life and future. The goal is to host an event which will become food for thought, since several fields will be covered, such as technology, entrepreneurship, culture, art, design, science and education.The speakers will share their experiences and ideas, in an inspirational way which the audience will be intrigued to see things from a different perspective. We plan to motivate the youth to take action today, in order to build the future which we desire to live in.

True to the TED spirit ‘’Ideas worth spreading’’ TEDx was created in 2009. This program gives communities, organizations, libraries, universities and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at the local level. TEDx events are planned and coordinated independently by volunteers. At this point there are more than 130 countries with a total of 4.524 events globally. In 2009 more than 230 TEDx events where organized with some examples of cities they were held in being London, Athens, Tokyo, Madrid and Singapore. The very same year more than 80 translations of TED talks were made and the phenomenon spread all around the globe. TEDx has brought a revolution in universal education giving access to every society to hear a different idea.

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Two major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Long Beach, California (along with a parallel conference, TEDActive, in Palm Springs), and TEDGlobal is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Venue

TEDxUniversityofPiraeus and its SPECTRUM of ideas, has the incredible honor to be hosted at one of the most prestigious and historic ships, «Hellas Liberty». Hellas Liverty, is found at exit E2 on the Port of Piraeus and is a Maritime Ship Museum for the last 8 years (since 2008). Its original name was SS Arthur M. Huddel and was constructed by Johns River Shipbuilding Company during 1943. During its beginning, it was mainly a ship carrying explosives and general cargo but during the summer of 1944, it was converted to a pipe carrier, carrying pipes from the United States to England.Therefore, it had a great significance, at the well-known «Operation PLUTO» (Pipe-Lines Under Construction) which followed the Normandy Landings and the Invasion of Normandy during World War Two.

 

 

Hellas Liberty (prior SS Arthur M. Huddel),was given and transferred to Greece in 2008 after Greek Ship Owners and the Greek Government negotiated with the United States and agreed to make Hellas Liberty the first Maritime Museum «On Sea», as a historic reminder of World War Two and the 2.000 Greek Marines who lost their lives during that time. Throughout 2009 and 2010, it was refurbished and underwent certain repairs and conversions to be finally open to the public on June 2010. The amazing ship museum is open to the public with no entrance fee everyday from 9:30 to 16:30.
