TEDxLondon: Beyond Borders

1 July, 11am to 8:30pm
Royal Festival Hall

“Beyond Borders is about seeing the possibilities.”

20 speakers – scientists, activists, social entrepreneurs, musicians, artists and many more – will be giving TED style talks to inspire you, to challenge you and to change the way you see the world. 

London is a global city at the crossroads of the world, a city of extremes and contradictions home to a diverse community with limitless creativity and exceptional humanity. We are TEDxLondon.

As global citizens we live in a constantly more interconnected world where we feel the joy and pain, share the successes and mourn the tragedies of our neighbours around the corner and across the world. We believe in building our future together, using our platform to give space to the unusual suspects, uncover hidden expertise, share stories of our common human experience, amplify the great ideas of today and tomorrow and support the architects of our future from every field.

TEDxLondon 2018 shows how we are beyond borders – beyond limitations, boundaries, categories and labels in order to solve society’s challenges, promote innovation and celebrate our humanity. This immersive, live event is for anyone who believes ideas can change the world and wants to be part of the global TEDx community of changemakers, leaders and creators.We support contagious, resilient ideas worth spreading. We want to live in a society that thinks, listens, creates and speaks beyond borders. Join us in reaching for it.

We are beyond borders

“I wasn’t expecting to feel so emotional today about real life stories. It was very, very powerful. Just get out there and talk to people. Get out of your comfort zone. Be more generous.”
