THE LEGACY OF SELF-DISCOVERY

Get involved

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 TEDxPlymouthUniversity, where x = independently organized TED event.

At our TEDxPlymouthUniversity 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-organized.

What is TEDxPlymouthUniversity

TEDxPlymouthUniversity will showcase new, exciting and inspirational ideas that can be found right here in Plymouth. Whether that’s internationally-leading research being carried out by Plymouth University, or an innovative local project that is helping transform lives in our community, we aim to start a conversation about the interesting and inspiring developments happening on our own doorstep.
