Our vision at TEDxLancasterU is to provide a platform that inspires and provokes change in the local and international community.
The goal of TED Talks is to give everyone on-demand access to the world’s most inspiring voices. TEDx is designed to give communities and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at a local level and foster an environment of creativity and collectiveness in the spirit of TED’s mission, ‘ideas worth spreading’.
Founded in 2012 within Lancaster University, a UK Top 10 University, with over 12,000 students from over 100 countries. TEDxLancasterU events are a combination of TED Talks videos and live speakers that spark stimulating conversations and interactions
The theme of this year’s event is THINKING FORWARD.
The need to look at the future has never been more crucial. How will our current ideals and values stand against the conditions of tomorrow? What new principles and technologies can propel today’s society toward the standards of tomorrow? What new ideas or philosophies will transform the way we see the world?
Part of the answers lie in innovation. Nowadays, we live in a world where changes are constantly made in many different places and in many different ways. The question is: are we really aware of our part in those changes?
At TEDxLancasterU, we are thrilled to explore these questions, and will attempt to understand how we can promote meaningful thinking and innovation that can move the world forward.
Our team at TEDxLancasterU is comprised of an innovative and passionate team responsible for the planning and delivery of the events. In collaboration with LUSU (Lancaster University Students Union) and senior Lancaster University admin and lecturers, the student project leaders manage different aspects including finance, technology and design, communications, events and speakers.
