TEDxLausanne Women 2016

TEDxLausanneWomen 2016 welcomes you on board!

TEDxLausanneWomen will take place on Thursday, 27th of October 2016 within the Opéra de Lausanne before a live audience. This is the second edition for TEDxLausanneWomen. It has been planned to coincide with TEDWomen 2016,  which will be streamed live from Monterey, California. The three hour programme on the theme of It's about time will blend local and international talks with an opportunity to meet challenging and interesting women from around the world.

The theme of TEDWomen and TEDxLausanneWomen 2016 is: It’s About Time. Time is personal.
We all have the same amount of time — 24 hours a day and yet most of us feel we never have enough. Even with today’s latest inventions, technology, science, we can’t make time or stop time — or can we?
Come explore time zones, time travel, time outs and times together. We will explore the conventions and challenges of time. We will ask the hard questions. Because isn't it about time: To find long-term solutions to climate change, poverty, immigration, violence, race, gender and economic inequities?
To lead for different outcomes?To challenge our "time-saving" technologies?To pay full attention and be fully present for ourselves as well as others?
