TEDxUppsalaUniversity 2018 – Why not?

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxUppsalaUniversity, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUppsalaUniversity event, TED Talk-videos and live speakers will be combined to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

TEDxUppsalaUniversity is now taking place for the sixth year, and will this year be held in Humanistiska teatern in Engelska parken. It’s a full day event with seven inspiring talks that are divided up into three blocks. In between the blocks, food is served and interactive activities are held.

All TED and TEDx events also follow a theme, our theme for this years event is “Why Not?” which the speakers talks and event as a whole will relate to. The theme was chosen as a counter to the question “why?” that we all find ourselves asking ourselves and others when thinking of certain ideas. So instead of questioning why we should learn how to cook, apply for that job or develope flying cars, how about questioning why not?
