What is TEDxTauranga?

It’s a day long event with 18 items of content (approximately 15 minutes long each). There are 5 components:

1. Live speakers on stage
2. Live entertainment
3. A selection of the best TED videos
4. Top quality food and beverage
5. Networking with like-minded individuals

It’s an opportunity for Bay of Plenty residents and friends to:
* Engage with local speakers and each other
* To experience a TED-like event
* To find ideas worth spreading

At TEDxTauranga every 15 minute component on stage will be different from the next:
* One might make you think
* Another, cry
* Another, change the way you live
* Another, motivate you to tell others
* Another, change your mind about something you’ve always believed
* Another, expose you to something you never knew could be so interesting

I do hope you’ll join us.

Sarah Thomson

Sarah works as a graduate lawyer in Auckland and studied at the University of Waikato. In 2015, with the help of law firm LeeSalmonLong, Sarah filed judicial review proceedings challenging the New Zealand government’s inadequate climate change targets. Sarah is asking the High Court to review the government’s decision to set New Zealand’s emissions reduction target under the Paris Agreement at 11% below 1990 levels by 2030. She also seeks review of the government’s failure to revise the 2050 target and set it in accordance with current climate science.

Toka Tu

Haka fusion combines the immense power of Māori kapahaka with the buoyancy of hip hop. We need a modern interpretation of a unique Aotearoa music and dance culture, and Toka Tu’s athleticism, story-telling, and wild poi work are the best example I’ve seen. Toka Tu will lead the New Zealand pop culture renaissance if New Zealand pop culture knows what’s good for it.
