2018 TEDx Main Conference

TEDxUniversityofEdinburgh is back in 2018 to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea-focused, and on a wide range of subjects, to foster learning, inspiration and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter.

Given the abundance of daunting news from many parts of the world we receive these days, it seems easy to fall trap to a sense of helplessness. To fight this feeling of discouragement: this year the theme of our conference is 'Empowerment'!
