About TEDxChiangMai

TEDxChiangMai is an independently organized TEDx event operated under license from TED. TEDxChiangMai is more than an event - it is a platform for ideas worth spreading, a dialogue, a call for action, and a community of people who believe in ideas, creativity, innovation and collaboration. Apart from the annual large creativity and idea forum “TEDxChiangMai”, we also organize smaller events & activities throughout the year.

TEDxChiangMai Event 2018

The theme “Our Common Future” blends social and environmental issues and refers to our profound interdependence as humans on earth. The theme highlights the importance of finding a sustainable path development. At TEDxChiangMai, we explore how to find common ground, raise our level of understanding, and create commitment to action.

TEDxChiangMai traces its origins to a small event in 2011. For TEDxChiangMai2018, we will have 15-20 speakers and performers and expect an audience of over 1,000. The speakers are from different fields including science, research, business, technology, and the arts. The talks will be in both Thai and English - we provide full simultaneous translation.

No plastic straws please

TEDxChiangMai is working with local groups in Chiang Mai to reduce the use of plastic straws and other forms of single-use plastic. We hope that more business owners and the public will avoid using plastic straws. Plastic straws are ranked No.5 on the list of top 10 plastic waste items collected in the oceans.

Care and love nature

We chose the four-leaf clover as a symbol of a future where we live in greater harmony with our natural environment. In our poster, a diverse group people jointly caring for the four-leaf clover, represent people cooperating for “Our Common Future”.


Social inclusion is critical for sustainable development and a positive common future. Great things can happen if we listen to each other, respect each other, find common ground, and work together.

TEDxCHIANGMAI “Our Common Future”

At Le Meridien Chiang Mai

10 February 2018

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