After the tremendous success of our two Salons in Term 1, TEDxWarwick are proud to present our Student Salon: Generation Z.
For the first time ever, we have selected some of Warwick's very own brightest minds to deliver talks on exciting new ideas that challenge norms and defy expectations. The future truly is at Warwick.
Join us in MS.01 for our final FREE event before our main conference! This is a truly unique opportunity to see the best of what your fellow students have to offer. There will also be a surprise performance - you won't want to miss out!
1) James da Costa - "How Your Old Brick Phone is Changing Millions of Lives Worldwide" - James, a social entrepreneur working to develop the world’s first App Store for the 'bottom billion', explores the power of mobile phones in the developing world.
2) Manan Metha - "If You Needed 100 Reasons to be Happy, Money Could Buy 70 of Them" - Manan speaks about the fields of happiness and economics and their implications in our lives. He will explain how experiential learning is a constant source of happiness and discuss herd behaviour, which he will argue, is driven by social media.
3) Stavros Antonopolous - "Words Apart: The Economic Signifcance of Fairy Tales" - Stavros explains how parenting choices are responsible for student achievement and structural economic inequalities. He has competed in over 25 national and international debating competitions and MUN conferences.
4) Ashley Mungai - "You're More than Enough as You Are" - At the age of 16 Ashley founded the Hands and Feet Organisation, empowering young girls to stand up to oppression and FGM. Ashley will remind us that no one is ever too young to instigate change and encourage us to empower those without a voice.
