TEDx speakers event comes to Lancaster University

Members of the public are invited to nominate a speaker for the first ever TEDx event at Lancaster University on 18th June.

TED (www.ted.com/tedx) is a world renowned nonprofit organisation devoted to ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’ and previous speakers have included Richard Dawkins, Bill Gates and several Nobel Laureates.

TEDx is designed to provide TED at a local level, with the event coordinated independently. Speakers can be from the local community as well as from the university but they should be experienced public speakers. The theme is “Discovery: The journey so far”, whether scientific, personal, historical, geographic, social and or of any other nature.

Nominations for speakers are open until Friday 26th April. The event, organised by students, will be recorded and streamed live and promoted by TED through their website and social media which reaches a potential audience of millions.
