TEDxPlymouthUniversity is back and is looking for speakers to bring the best ideas in Plymouth to a wider audience.
The TEDxPlymouthUniversity evening last spring themed around the Evolution of Inspiration saw thirteen speakers selected from over seventy applicants to bring their chosen topics to the stage. Fascinating talks on; being a Futurist, how the oceans connects us, evolution of the undead, equality, robotics, poetry, prejudice and changing the world, made for a night full of inspiration and insight.
Plymouth has a proud history of exploration and discovery, and that pioneering spirit is still alive today. There are amazing innovations, fascinating discoveries, and inspirational ideas right on our doorstep, right now.
TEDxPlymouthUniversity’s Spirit of Discovery will bring together the best of what Plymouth has to offer now and for the future. From entrepreneurs to explorers, philosophers to physicists, we will bring people together to discover new ideas and forge lasting connections.
The event will take place in February 2018 and the deadline for speaker submissions is 17 November. The TEDxPlymouthUniversity team will choose successful speakers at the beginning of December.
The event is independently organised under licence from international non-profit organisation TED, which is devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks, and will take place on the university’s city centre campus.
