THEME

The theme of this year’s event is (In)Visible Changes

“The only constant in life is change” is a common saying, attributed by some to Heraclitus, a greek philosopher. At TEDxLancasterU we want to explore how change occurs; how change makers overcome obstacles and tap into the limitless potentialities of others. We aim to demonstrate that positive change is possible, and is happening all around us, even if typically unseen.

The visible, and invisible, forces influencing our society, will be put under the microscope, paying attention to the peculiar intricacies of our everyday lives. We want to identify the infinite high leverage opportunities for change. We hope to embark on a journey to explore what influences us and how we can influence society. To quote Heraclitus once again, “He who does not expect the unexpected will not find it out.”
