TEDxAlmedalen, 7 July, 2016

The theme for the 2016 edition of TEDxAlmedalen is “Power to the people – who are the people”


In a world where Googling is superior to ponder over the issue, we ask ourselves – who determines your truth and who runs it? Who determines reality, and who has the power?

Facts, documents, opinions and truths lead us to make decisions but also to doubt already made decisions. Whose voice do you listen to and how valuable is your own?

  • 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 call TEDx Almedalen, where x=independently organized TED event. At our TEDx Almedalen 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.
