TEDxExeter 2014 – Ideas Without Frontiers
Introduction

TEDxExeter 2014 – Ideas Without Frontiers

At TEDxExeter 2014 our speakers and performers will connect us with other worlds. Our talks will expose corruption in big business, share effective approaches to tackling social inequality and give a voice to those whose human rights are under threat. We will explore the impact of fast changing technologies on all our lives. We’ll journey through fire and forest to frozen landscapes. We’ll be challenged to consider worlds of extremes, cutting edge controversies and risky opportunities.TEDxExeter is working to share the voices of thinkers, innovators and performers who will delight and inspire.

The aim is to spark deep conversations and connections across a wide range of groups in Exeter and Devon and to make a relevant and valuable contribution to the community.

TEDxExeter is the first TEDx event to take place in the South West peninsula. The event will be held 20th of April 2012.
