At TEDxUQ, the dream to bring the best ideas not just to the student body but beyond the walls of our institution to the world, remains one of our greatest. This year we turn that dream into a reality through live streaming.

TEDxUQ aims to bring the ‘TED-like’ experience to UQ and to give local talents the platform to share their world-class ideas. After the successful first event in 2013, TEDxUQ 2014 will again bring exceptional individuals together to deliver diverse, thought-provoking and inspiring topics. Our theme 'Old Ideas, New World' will be the common link between all the talks at TEDxUQ 2014.
Our first TEDxUQ event, The Extraordinary, was a huge success! On 23 March 2013, six top speakers gathered to inspire the audience with their world class ideas. Click below for more information

TEDxUQ 2014 Event
TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 26 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. At TED, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes. Talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Two major TED events are held each year: The TED Conference takes place every spring in Long Beach, California (along with a parallel conference, TEDActive, in Palm Springs), and TEDGlobal is held each summer in Edinburgh, Scotland. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily; the new TED Conversations, enabling broad conversations among TED fans; and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to host local, self-organized events around the world; and the TED Fellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities. For information about TED’s upcoming conferences, visit TED’s website. Also, you can follow TED on Twitter or on Facebook.
TIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
