TedxExeter 2014 - Ideas Without Frontiers

At TEDxExeter 2014 our speakers and performers connected us with other worlds. Our talks exposed corruption in big business, shared effective approaches to tackling social inequality and gave a voice to those whose human rights are under threat. We explored the impact of fast changing technologies on all our lives. We journeyed through fire and forest to frozen landscapes. We were challenged to consider worlds of extremes, cutting edge controversies and risky opportunities.

As with our previous two conferences there was music, an excellent locally sourced lunch and wonderful opportunities in the breaks to meet and mix with speakers, performers and fellow TEDx-ers, and continue the conversation.

It was a day not to be missed!

TedxExeter 2013 - Living the Questions

In Letters to a Young Poet, Rainer Maria Rilke wrote: “I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”

In TEDxExeter 2013, we explored how to live the important questions facing us in all areas of life, including money, business, prosperity, sustainability, the environment, childhood and old age, community, society, science.

To help us, we gathered a group of outstanding innovators, activists and performers who are changing the world through their ground breaking work and ideas. But the opportunity to engage with and be inspired by other attendees was as at TEDxExeter 2012 a major part of the day.
