This year’s TEDxStockholm will be hosting Lighthouse, an enlightening and amazing experience of live TEDx talks where seven speakers will share new, brilliant ideas that will bring light into our lives.
The talks will be given by particle physics, serial adventurers, artists, creative geniuses and covering topics such as technology, entertainment, design, education, science and society.
Lighthouse will look into the past and future of music, what will prevail and what will emerge to disrupt industry, how the new generation brings some important lessons and challenges in the future workforce, how data can not only explain, but also empower individuals and break glass ceilings, how imagination cannot be defined by constructs of usefulness and pragmatism and how to keep it alive. We will explore what AI can offer for education, what you can learn by crossing the Atlantic Ocean in a rowboat, and how to restructure your home so that we will not need planets of resources to support our needs in twenty years.
Two artists perform live during the event, we will see TED talk videos and innovative companies participate as exhibitors. The event ends with an after party that continues until 1:00 pm.
