TEDxLSTM: Unknown Destinations

About this Event

‘Journey

Noun

1. An act of travelling from one place to another

1.1. A long and often difficult process of personal change and development.’

Science is the ultimate exploration of the unknown. It is our rationale for systematic study: to build on existing ideas, develop technology, and break boundaries. It is a collective progress. It is a journey.

On the 16th November 2019, TEDxLSTM will celebrate this journey by showcasing a myriad of cutting-edge research projects being undertaken in Liverpool, one of the most important historical sites of multiculturalism in the UK. Whilst anchored in the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, research networks have expanded and journeyed across the globe ensuring the impact of the work carried out on the Tropics is in the Tropics, making a very real change to millions of lives.

By highlighting the different issues affecting people from all around the world and celebrating exploration and the integration of cultures, this event will draw upon stories, experiences and adventures.

We hope to enthuse generations of people, foster interest in research, and inspire new ideas.

From climate change to cave-diving. Together we travel into the unknown on a journey of discovery and fascination.

Welcome to TEDxLSTM: Unknown Destinations.

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.)

About TED

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.
