2014: The Common Wealth

Our aim is to inspire creativity, empower change and drive innovation to help our city thrive. Our events are organised by our group of volunteers, without whom TEDxGlasgow wouldn’t be possible. Our partners are also key to us; supporting us by providing their resources, knowledge and capital to help us make our events possible.

TEDxGlasgow 2014 is being held on Sunday June 8th at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, the theme for which is The Common Wealth. Information on ticket sales and prices is available here.


What is TEDx?

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 TEDxGlasgow, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxGlasgow events, 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.

Speakers

In keeping with this year’s theme, The Common Wealth, all of our speakers have a wealth of knowledge in a specific area.

There are volunteers, professionals, fundraisers and advocates of social change, all of whom have demonstrated commitment, passion and drive which we know will inspire our audience.

From running community groups or sports clubs, to establishing technology businesses, overcoming obstacles or analysing data, you’ll be treated to a wide range of thought provoking and engaging talks from our speakers. In addition, we will be hosting two TEDx labs where smaller groups will have the opportunity to discuss issues affecting our common wealth.
