Our vision at TEDxLancasterU is to provide a platform that inspires and provokes change in the local and international community.

The goal of TED Talks is to give everyone on-demand access to the world’s most inspiring voices. TEDx is designed to give communities and individuals the opportunity to stimulate dialogue through TED-like experiences at a local level and foster an environment of creativity and collectiveness in the spirit of TED’s mission, ‘ideas worth spreading’.

Founded in 2012 within Lancaster University, a UK Top 10 University, with over 12,000 students from over 100 countries. TEDxLancasterU events are a combination of TED Talks videos and live speakers that spark stimulating conversations and interactions


The theme of this year’s event is (In)Visible Changes

“The only constant in life is change” is a common saying, attributed by some to Heraclitus, a greek philosopher. At TEDxLancasterU we want to explore how change occurs; how change makers overcome obstacles and tap into the limitless potentialities of others. We aim to demonstrate that positive change is possible, and is happening all around us, even if typically unseen.

The visible, and invisible, forces influencing our society, will be put under the microscope, paying attention to the peculiar intricacies of our everyday lives. We want to identify the infinite high leverage opportunities for change. We hope to embark on a journey to explore what influences us and how we can influence society. To quote Heraclitus once again, “He who does not expect the unexpected will not find it out.”
