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.
Dr Diahanne Rhiney BCAe has developed groups, presented workshops and spoken extensively on self-esteem, body issues, children in care, abuse, emotional well-being and healthy relationships. In her talk she explores the power of social media.
What do you want to be when you grow up? This is a question we hear innocently asked thousands of times in our youth. We look around inside our head we analyse every aspect of our being and trust our brain to deliver the correct answer.
‘Do you want to study the arts or the sciences? Is there a future in the creative industries? Is there a future in the sciences?’. Many of us have had to decide on these questions at some point during our education, be it in high school or upon deciding on a university or college course.
