Theme: Positive Disruption

This event occurred on
April 3, 2013
5:00pm - 7:50pm CEST
(UTC +2hrs)
Lausanne, Vaud (fr)

TEDxLausanneChange will share ideas that challenge the status quo, as disruption can shed a unique light on difficult issues and treating it in a positive way will allow us to solve problems regarding global health and development. The speakers will challenge preconceived ideas, spark discussion, engage leaders and shed light on new perspectives.

The event will include three local speakers who were chosen for their personal involvement in the initiatives they will speak about, which focus on development of potential, the personal contributions that we can make to society, as well as environment and health.

The event also includes a live feed to the TEDxChange 2013 event in Seattle, Washington with seven more speakers, as hosted by Melinda Gates. The event will be followed by an apéro buffet.
