TEDx Truro 2018 - WonderThis year TEDxTruro will take place on Friday 26th October at Truro & Penwith College
TED is a non-profit organization devoted to ideas worth spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxTruro, where x = independently organized TED event.
At our TEDxTruro event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
About the event
The eagerly anticipated third TEDxTruro event will take place on Friday 26 October at Truro & Penwith College’s Truro campus. This year the event’s theme is ‘Wonder’. TEDxTruro is a full day event which brings together speakers who will share stories, pose questions, start conversations and reveal insights into their work.
“We want to encourage our audience to marvel at the wonders of the world and take a moment to appreciate the beauty all around us. Our speakers will open doors to new understanding and provide inspiration for anyone who has ever asked themselves the question: ‘I wonder?’”
