With over 793 million illiterate adults in the world, two-thirds of whom are women, TEDxWarwickED addresses the importance of education in the world we live in today.

We will share with you recent innovations through the use of technology, art and music but most importantly we invite you to share your views on inspired learning and education worldwide for those who are unable to avail it or those who fail to value it.
