We’re excited to announce that TEDxWolverhampton will return for our 4th year in 2022!
Join us as we explore our new theme…
Our theme for 2022 is in recognition of the journey many of us find ourselves on as we emerge into a new world post COVID’.
Mirror, signal, manoeuvre used to be one of the first rules we hear when learning to drive (now MSPSL) and is synonymous with keeping yourself and those around you safe, which has been a key message over the past few years.
At TEDxWolverhampton 2022 we’re exploring ideas that help us reflect (Mirror) on the past few years, indicate (Signal) the changes and adaptations we have to make in response to the changes around us and, more importantly, help us successfully determine the way forward (Manoeuvre).
So, make sure you’re sitting comfortably, strap yourself and get ready to mirror, signal, manoeuvre, as we take you on a journey through some ideas worth spreading!
More about TEDx & TED
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
The annual TED Conference takes place each spring in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TED Talks are posted daily; TED Translators, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as translations from volunteers worldwide; the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established The Audacious Project that takes a collaborative approach to funding ideas with the potential to create change at thrilling scale; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.
