TURN THE TIDE
TEDxWexford has now been rescheduled for Thursday Aug 11th 2022.
As we resist, shape, and embrace change, in our environment, society, economy and culture it’s exciting to reflect upon the new directions and transitions ahead. Differences, decisions, opportunities and challenges will abound. How will science, politics, media, commerce, sports, education, agriculture or the arts respond and evolve?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxWexford, where x = independently organised TED event. At our TEDxWexford event, TEDTalks 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 organised.
