Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have had to make some changes for our upcoming TEDxLeicester Salon, Tech for HumanityWe now have a new venue and a change of date for this event.  Our new hosts are the fantastic team at Leicester Innovation Hub (LE1 7PA) and it will now be taking place on Friday 5th July (2-4pm).

We’ll still have some thought-provoking speakers talking about the impact of technology on our day-to-day lives as well as great opportunities for businesses, civic leaders, local communities and volunteers to connect with each other and with the TEDxLeicester Team.  The event is now also FREE for all attendees*.  Tickets can be found here.

 


 

In our second TEDxLeicester Salon event of 2019 we’ll be taking a closer look at the role that technology plays in our everyday interactions with the world around us; our cities, communities and relationships. What are the opportunities? What role does technology have in improving our society? What traps should we avoid?

Technology impacts nearly every facet of our lives; from producing and transporting food, to how we build relationships with our communities, to improving the quality of the air we breathe, the application of technology disrupts our world.

Hear from experts in their field talk about their ideas on how to leverage the power of technology to tackle some of the biggest problems we face as a society and a global community.

Come and feel inspired by the power of tech.

Throughout the afternoon there will be opportunities to connect with fellow delegates and to further explore the themes and topics covered by the speakers.
