What's Your Why? - Discover the Whole Story

In the meeting room of our minds, home to the likes of WHAT, HOW, and WHERE that dictate our daily routine, at the short end of the table, sits WHY. Keeping to itself in the small matters, it is there the answer a bigger question and when your Why answers, that’s when the real quest to the goal starts. Through the series of questions that originate from it, why translates our conscious and subconscious aspirations into actions and dictates our direction of movement in a world which has numerous paths to offer.

To comprehend the effect of “Why” in full effect, let’s look back to the Battle of Thermopylae. The battle between the king of kings, Xerxes I, and King Leonidas of Sparta shows what Why does. 7000 Greeks were no match for the Persian army of 200,000, yet they made a last stand that is remembered even after 2500 years. The courage and patriotism seemed to overcome the numerical disadvantage. It was their Why: defend the motherland and families at all costs, that gave them this direction and power. This year’s TEDx is dedicated to connecting you to your why.

Realizing your why and committing to it brings you closer to the journey to greatness. It aids you in withstanding the tiring paths, the thorny ways, and the troublesome tracks. It motivates your soul and polishes your personality. It makes you what you were born to be! So join us and learn the WHYs behind who aimed and flew high. Together this TEDx lets find out WHAT’S YOUR WHY

TED

TED is a non-profit organization with the slogan – an idea worth spreading. It’s a global community welcoming influencers from all disciplines and cultures to a single platform. It focuses on bringing positive change in the entire world with small yet powerful talks. Initially, only a powerful convergence of three fields: technology, entertainment and design, TED has now broadened its horizon to numerous other fields including culture, politics, entrepreneurship, and many more. TED is currently owned by a nonprofit, non-partisan foundation. Their agenda is to make great ideas accessible and to spark conversation. Everything they do — from their TED Talks videos, to the global TEDx communi- ty, to the TED-Ed lesson series — is driven by this goal: How can we best spread great ideas? The impact of TED on the community is strong enough to enlighten a spark for a better tomorrow.

TEDx

TED being a global event can’t accommodate so many individuals with great ideas from over 7 billion humans. TEDx brings the spirit of TED’s mission of ideas worth spreading to local communities around the globe. TEDx events are organized by curious individuals who seek to discover ideas and spark conversations in their own community. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis. The content and design of each TEDx event is unique and developed independently, but all of them have features in common. The whole event focuses on a predefined theme and individuals are sought after accordingly for each TEDx event. The talks are carefully prepared and monitored by respective team members to make sure their compliance with the TEDx format.

PIEAS

PIEAS is the top-ranked university of Pakistan, considered so by both national and international experts in the last few years. It lies on the outskirts of Islamabad where the city-life meets the beautiful valley of Nilore, filled with water streams and verdure. PIEAS is an outlier of the Pakistani education system for not only educating students but also instilling passion and adventure in their lives. It has made this possible by the proficient faculty that it exhibits, among which more than 80 are PhDs.

PIEAS is a prime hub of research for Pakistan. The research fields range from Nanotechnology to Nuclear engineering on one hand and from Bio-Technology to Nuclear medicine on the other. PIEAS has awarded PhDs to more than 90 scholars for their contribution to research in these fields with about 150 more underway. The research of faculty and scholars have produced over 700 renown publications in the last five years alone. The wide citation that these publications receive from all over the world speaks for itself.
