The years’ theme: Still Human
The world is moving increasingly faster, and technology is integrated in nearly all aspects of life. Self-driving vehicles, smart-homes, 3D-printers and robots are becoming part of the new normal. We read news from all over the world and share our own news for the world to see. In a split second, a moment in New York can be spread to New Delhi. We are more intertwined than ever before and more impacted by each other’s cultures and policies. The world may become smaller, but we are moving further and further apart from each other.
So what does it mean to still be human?
Our needs, feelings and dreams have not changed. We still thrive for understanding, love and respect. All humans. In an ever changing world it might be more important than ever to look out for each other and be hopeful for the future.
Tickets will be released on Tuesday, 14th of February at 12:00. The tickets are priced at NOK 830 per ticket, including administration fee, excluding meals.
The sale of food vouchers has now ended. To all of you with a pre-purchased voucher please be shure to bring it with you on the day.
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxOslo, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxOslo event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.”
