The TEDxÉcole Polytechnique team is proud to announce that their conference will take place on the 20th of May 2023, in the Gay-Lussac lecture hall of École Polytechnique.

For this event, we have chosen the theme "Crossroads"; we will examine the intersections of global trends and the critical decision points that shape our collective future.

From climate change and technological disruption to geopolitical shifts and social justice movements, our world is facing unprecedented challenges and opportunities. By exploring these macro-level crossroads, we aim to inspire you to think critically about the choices we make as a society and their impact on our shared future.

It will be followed by a cocktail during which you can meet our speakers.
