About The Event

ISHTEDx is an annual event created in the spirit of TED’s overall message of “ideas worth sharing”. This event has been an integral part of the International School of Hyderabad’s annual events since 2016. Talented individuals across Hyderabad have come together to network, ideate, and present their insightful talks.


Our goal is to give young students a platform to share their passions, wisdom, experiences, and ideas. The event will encourage the sharing of beneficial skills for both audience and the speaker. Namely, critical thinking, open-mindedness, public speaking, and effective communication.

In the spirit of the TEDx values and goals, we aim to be a single-use plastic-free event. All the merchandise, utensils, and decoration used in the event have been made with environmentally friendly materials or are being reused. We urge you to help us with this initiative by being mindful of personal waste and your carbon footprint!

Finding Synergy In Chaos: My experience with the Ukraine war


My name is Sagnika Nayak. I am in 11th grade at the International School Of Hyderabad and will be talking at TEDxISH about the importance of synergy with respect to Ukraine’s resilience given the war. From having lived in Ukraine for the past 16 years, I have experienced first-hand the unity that has emerged from the synergy of the people in their fight for freedom.  These lessons are essential, especially for our new generation in learning the importance of collaboration and contribution.

About TEDx

What is TEDx?

What is TEDx? In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.


Our event is called TEDxISH, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxISH event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading, often in the form of short talks delivered by leading thinkers and doers. Many of these talks are given at TED Conferences, intimate TED Salons and thousands of independently organised TEDx events around the world. Videos of these talks are made available, free, on and other platforms. Audio versions of TED Talks are published to TED Talks Daily, available on all podcast platforms. TED's open and free initiatives for spreading ideas include, where new TED Talk videos are posted daily; TEDx, which licenses thousands of individuals and groups to host local, self-organized TED-style events around the world; the TED Fellows program, which selects innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities; The Audacious Project, which surfaces and funds critical ideas that have the potential to impact millions of lives; TED Translators Program, which crowdsources the subtitling of TED Talks so that big ideas can spread across languages and borders; and the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED also offers TED@Work a program that reimagines TED Talks for workplace learning. TED also has a growing library of original podcasts, including The TED Interview with Chris Anderson, WorkLife with Adam Grant, Far Flung with Saleem Reshamwala and How to Be a Better Human.
