The overarching ‘theme’ for our 2017 was INSPIRING GENERATIONS.
Given the ever changing society, many would agree it is time for us to consider how we ensure we inspire everyone- from children to pensioners – about learning, education and even life in general! It is through having inspiring people from all generations that we, as a human race, can continue to develop and thrive.
On 18th March 2017, we heard 27 amazing talks- all of which were inspirational and thought provoking in their own right.
Over 250,000 people tweeted using #tedxnorwiched during the day.
We trended on twitter in the UK for 7 hours.
7,500 unique viewers joined us online
Quite simply- the response was phenomenal.
Ideas have been sprung, collaborations planned, projects dreamed of, and pledges made.
Together, we explored ways in which we can inspire- about learning, about skills and about life. Our theme was broad, the conversations were exciting and engaging and the impact will be far reaching.
But, it’s not too late for you to be part of our inspiring journey.
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxNoriwchED event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organised.
