Videos of Exeter’s latest TEDx events, which took place at the Exeter Northcott theatre in April are now online.
TEDs (which stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design) are not-for-profit conferences which skip along under the slogan ‘ideas worth spreading’; TEDx-es are independently organised TED events.
TEDxExeter 2013 ran under the not unamibitious title of Living the Questions, which explored ‘how to live the important questions facing us in all areas of life, including money, business, prosperity, sustainability, the environment, childhood and old age, community, society, science’. Phew!
The day was jam-packed with talks and performances, which included Jonathon Porritt, home-grown wordsmith Matt Harvey, and Tobit Emmens, who spoke about how to be a revolutionary. We’ve just picked three, for our punch list, but there are loads more, and they are all worth checking out.
And they rarely last more than 20 minutes, so its pretty easy to fit at least one into your day. Think of watching a TEDxExeter vid as your treat into new thinking, while supporting the local ideas economy.
TEDxExeter began in Exeter in 2012, with the theme was Sustainability and Our Interconnected World.
We’ll leave you with Tom Crompton talking about The Conscience Industry. Catch more of the TEDxExeter vids!
