TING TALKS ideas worth listening to.
TING is a social community devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful interview of two points of view (e.g. representatives from two different nations as to facilitate cross borders dialogues) (18 minutes or less). TING talks will began in 2019 as a conference in various academic institutions and will cover almost all topics from science to business to global issues in every language.
In the future our plan is to independently run TINGy events help share ideas in communities around the world. Our Mission: Change the way we manage ideas. TING is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On TING.Global, we are facilitating dialogues between the world’s most inspired environmental, social and political leaders and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TING and TINGy events around the world, all year long.
In fact, everything we do from our Conferences to our TING Talks to the projects sparked by the TING Prize, from the global TEDy community, TING-Kids to the TING-Ed lesson series is driven by this goal: How can we best spread great ideas?
TING is still a concept on the go, nonpartisan foundation. Our agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation by bringing controversial speakers to campus. Want to know more? Contact us!
The structure of TING Talks is as follows:
Part 1 – EARS- each side listens to the other side as it shares its story.
Part 2 – EYES – each side puts itself in the eyes of the other.
Part 3 – HEART – finding common ground, and at the same time a better and deeper understanding of our own beliefs while brainstorm how to progress together.

“It’s my belief that to achieve progress in the face of adversity, we need a genuine commitment to gaining a deeper understanding of humanity. I’d like to see a world with more leaders who are familiar with the depths of the views of those they deeply disagree with, so that they can understand the nuances of everyone they’re representing. I see this as an ongoing process involving constant learning, and I’m confident that I’ll be able to add value down the line if I continue building empathy and understanding through engaging with unfamiliar perspectives.” – Zachary R.
