Theme: The Future

This event occurred on

Universities have always been the houses of knowledge, where everything known, the past, is protected.
However, the university is also the pillar of research and the future. A future that every time seems to approach faster.

That is why, for the first time, from the Complutense University of Madrid, a space for reflection on the aspects of our immediate future will be created: the future of work, the future of education, environmentalism, love, sex, crime, sports, artificial intelligence and even the future of our traditions.

We are waiting you in the first TEDxUCM.
