TEDxExeter 2015 – Taking the Long View

… happened on 24 April 2015 in the Exeter Northcott Theatre, with a concurrent ticketed livestream in Exeter Library’s Rougemont Room, and an online livestream.

STOP PRESS!! The videos are now available, and you can also relive the day through the live blog and the photos.

Our fourth TEDxExeter conference took both the long view back into the past and the long view ahead into the future, and asked how they can reveal and help us to understand the challenges that face us now, and shape the way we live, make decisions, and innovate. TEDTalks video and live speakers combined to spark deep discussion and connection.

  • 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 TEDxExeter, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxExeter 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.
