TEDxLeicester Conference 2019: Fast Forward

Saturday 7th September 2019

The Y Theatre, East St LE1 6EY

9:15 am – 5:00 pm

We are pleased to announce the return of the TEDxLeicester Conference which will take place at The Y Theatre on Saturday 7th September 2019. This full-day event will host a series of talks and performances to spark great conversations, generate new ideas and inspire action. Our conferences are always attended by an incredibly diverse audience; from business owners, members of local government, students, sports men and women, to artists and more, we bring together people from all backgrounds to engage with our Ideas Worth Sharing.

The Conference Theme

Human progress has led us to being the most advanced animal on the planet, colonising continents, building civilisations, creating technologies and systems which allow us to connect and work collectively in our continual endeavours to thrive as a species. Our population is booming, our tools are sophisticated, our global connectivity exceeds anything that has gone before. But to what end? Where are we heading? Are we failing to learn from the past? Are we doing enough to address the challenges we face?

Fast Forward will bring together speakers and performers who will share their knowledge, stories and ideas about our progress; what we can take from our history and understand about our present as we launch ourselves into an unknown future. We’ll hear from people with a whole range of backgrounds and a hugely diverse worldview who will inspire and excite.
