We all lived through the pandemic, times where fear and uncertainty were the norm. And we survived.
Now it the time to redesign our society, to build new norms and expectations.
Now it the time to be reborn.

Our mission

We are a team of passionate volunteers who are curious about everything and aim to promote ideas worth spreading in Lausanne and in Switzerland.

We celebrate human inventiveness, creativity, and resourcefulness while promoting a well-intended, positively oriented mindset.

By supporting TEDxLausanne, you contribute to create synergies between innovators, forward-thinkers, and agents of change in Lausanne and everywhere in the world, inspiring positive actions to change our lives for the better.

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 TEDxLausanne, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxLausanne event, TED Talks 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.
