About this event

TED movie night and discussion with the Disruptive Thinkers group at co-merge. There is room for about 30 and a massive 72 inch tv! If we have spillover there are extra conference rooms we can use. We will be watching a live broadcast of selected sessions from TED. Bring a friend!

After a year-long search for the world's most exciting unheard voices ... and an unprecedented number of suggestions from the global TED community on the speakers who matter most right now ... we proudly present the speaker line-up for TED2013: The Young. The Wise. The Undiscovered.

This line-up features the largest number of speakers in TED's history — more than 70. That's because many of the talks this year are shorter. Often 12 minutes or less, instead of 18. And nearly half of the program comes from our first-ever global talent search. Events were held in 14 cities around the world and attracted thousands of applicants, including some truly astounding youngsters.

Bringing them together has created a fast-moving program covering an incredible variety of topics. At the same time we've been able to drill deep on some of the biggest issues the world is facing. For example, the opening session features a major debate on a question puzzling economists, one with huge implications for all our futures. And the final day digs into fundamental questions of identity, spirituality and legacy. This will be a thrilling journey. We can't wait to go on it with you. Welcome to TED2013: The Young. The Wise. The Undiscovered.
