Staying connected through the TEDxLondon community

We are living in unprecedented and uncertain times. There is no shortage of news coverage around COVID-19 and the impact it is having on society. At TEDxLondon we are extremely privileged to have access to a network of experts. We want to bring our community insights that go beyond the headlines, find answers to questions we’re all asking and explore issues that haven’t had as much attention.

Over the coming weeks, we want to create a virtual space for our community to come together, explore ideas worth spreading and help us all feel a little less alone. Last week we hosted the first virtual “Conversations Beyond Borders”, which brought together over 700 viewers from 20 different countries.

This week we’ll be joined by human rights barrister Sangeetha Iengar, to discuss the new emergency coronavirus legislation and the impact of the pandemic on vulnerable people she works with. Also joining us is Jude Habib, the founder of sounddelivery, who will be discussing her work amplifying the voices of individuals with lived experiences of social injustice and why this is now more important than ever.

Hosted by TEDxLondon Director and Curator Maryam Pasha, these weekly webinars will be available live via Zoom (register here) and live streamed on our Facebook page.
