About TEDx

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.
