Our theme for TEDxWolverhampton 2020 is Ctrl+Alt+Del where we’ll be exploring ‘control’ within society, ‘alternative ways’ of thinking and ideas, approaches and concepts that have been or need deleting to enable us and our communities to grow.
Ctrl+Alt+Del, or the three-finger salute, is the commonly known combination of keys on a PC keyboard, used to re-boot the system. However, it was never meant for public knowledge. In fact, it came about by mistake and was for computer developers’ fingers only…
…unfortunately, or fortunately, dependent on you point of view, the information was accidently included in IBM’s technical reference manual and released to the public. The rest, as they say, is history!
At TEDxWolverhampton 2020 we’re exploring ideas that challenge, turn long held and accepted norms on their heads, challenge the status quo and reset and reboot our thinking.
So, get ready to give the three-finger salute to your old ways of thinking and open your mind to ideas worth sharing!

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 TEDxWolverhampton, where x = independently organized TED event.
At our event, TED Talks 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.
