TEDxUniversityofEdinburgh Main Conference - Empowerment

Tuesday, 20 February, 2018 - 09:00 to 17:30
McEwan Hall

TEDxUniversityofEdinburgh is back in 2018 with its yearly flagship conference. The aim of TEDxUoE is 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. At TEDxUoE we want to fight this feeling of discouragement. That's why this year the theme of our conference is 'Empowerment'.

In this full-day conference, our locally-sourced speakers will navigate diverse topics to show us why we can be hopeful about the future we share, and they will spread their ideas to empower us in our everyday personal life. Talks will cover various fields of knowledge from multilingualism to video games, from eating habits to breakthrough scientific discoveries achieved here at Edinburgh University!

Lunch included. Speakers line-up coming soon.

The conference will officially start at 10AM. Doors open at 9AM.
