On Friday 1st June 2018, we welcomed thought-provoking, inspirational speakers, thinkers, and doers to our sixth annual event, where we explored the theme ‘Rethink…‘ at the SEC Armadillo in Glasgow.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxGlasgow, where x = independently organised TED event. At our TEDxGlasgow events, live speakers come together to spark deep discussion and connect. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organised.
Glasgow is a city of contrasts, from dire mortality rates to a recognised future city. So what better city to use the TEDx platform to bring Scotland together.
Public institutions, such as the Bank of England, were created by the public for the public. Yet public trust in, and understanding of, these public institutions has been eroded, including by the financial crisis. How can this be changed?
Catherine has used the world’s best telescopes to map out the invisible dark matter in our universe and confront different theories on the dark universe. In her talk, she explores this dark enigma and explains why she thinks that in order to truly understand it we need some new physics that will forever change our cosmic view.
The world of work is changing rapidly around us, but by present measures the UK’s productivity is woeful, and yet we work long hours. Clearly, something isn’t working.
@BillyMonger how do we get in touch with you?
