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 at 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.
We are a group of driven individuals, currently studying at Lancaster University, who are committed to bringing a new multi-faceted perspective to our community and ultimately the world. Using a different lens to look at ideas and phenomena is necessary in today’s life. We like to look at the circular space of the red carpet, typical for TEDx events, as a new dimension in the reality we are aware of. Our aim is to bring together speakers who are passionate visionaries and want to share their story, which would inspire and empower the audience as well as spark some exciting conversations.
