TEDxExeter 2015 – Taking the Long View
We are delighted to be able to announce that TEDxExeter 2015 will be happening in the Exeter Northcott Theatre on 24 April 2015.
We aim to take the long view back into the past, and explore how it has shaped the world we now live in. We want to ask about what responsibilities the past places on us in the way we live now and how we innovate. Much current political, economic and personal decision-making is rife with short-termism. So we will also take the long view into the future, and ask how it can reveal and help us to understand the challenges that face us now, and shape the way we live and the decisions we make?
We very much look forward to seeing you there.
TEDxExeter 2014 – Ideas Without Frontiers
At TEDxExeter 2014 our speakers and performers connected us with other worlds. Our talks exposed corruption in big business, shared effective approaches to tackling social inequality and gave a voice to those whose human rights are under threat. We explored the impact of fast changing technologies on all our lives. We journeyed through fire and forest to frozen landscapes. We were challenged to consider worlds of extremes, cutting edge controversies and risky opportunities.
