Our TEDx event will feature talks on creative ideas and innovative research from the University of Birmingham and beyond. Whether you’re a UoB student or not, come along and discuss what it means to be human.
What is the theme all about?
We want to create an event which focuses on humans and our impact on each other, the world around us and the past, present and future. Our TEDx event will host a range of TEDx speakers on this theme from a variety of different academic, cultural and sociological backgrounds. We really want to make our event as engaging and wide-ranging as possible to generate interesting and thought-provoking discussions.
What does TEDx mean to us?
We hope that our TEDx event will challenge audience members perceptions of our place in the world and the impact we have on those around us. TEDx itself is about sharing the latest and greatest new ideas and research so that everyone can gain a greater understanding of the world. As humans, we all have ideas, capacity for change, and the ability to contribute to the world. This event will be a way of communicating and discussing each human’s capacity for impact, for better, or worse. TEDx is all about ‘Ideas worth spreading’ and respects innovative researchers as well as creatives; we want to present the best ideas worth sharing from local communities and beyond.
