TEDxUniversityofEdinburgh is back in 2021/2022 with its yearly flagship conference. TEDxUoE aims to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea-focused and on a wide range of subjects, to foster learning, inspiration, and wonder-and provoke conversations that matter.

From the outset of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has been both a disruptor and a test of Global solidarity. The divergent response to quell its impact on lives and livelihood has cast several doubts on scientific logic, increased inequality, and cause a notable divide within and between countries. However, the pandemic has redefined the way we live as humans and the constant phrase that COVID-19 is not the first pandemic and will not be the last has aroused a sense of urgency to think about the future. Therefore, we consider the need to tell the inside story of a new millennium. This involves the drive to protect our world against future disasters through our tools and stimulate the needed quest to develop more tools to save the globe from unforetold adversity.

Through the TEDx, we hope to discuss our possibility as humans to keep our world safe for the next millennium, reflecting on the role of technology for a new world and strengthening enduring and inseparable global solidarity during the crisis in the recent future.

To document thoughts that will take precedence in the future, we hope to create for the next generation.

By inviting multidisciplinary speakers, young and old, diverse races, we aim to discuss our differences and chat about a new solution that will dissolve the future local, regional, and global development barriers.
