10 years of TEDxLausanne
Let’s celebrate together! In 2020, it will be 10 years since our first TEDxLausanne Change at IMD. Thanks to your support, the local TEDx community grew from a few hundreds to more than 2000 joining the TEDxLausanne conversations last year, in TEDxLausanne, TEDxLausanneSalons and TEDxLausanneWomen.
We want to thank you by throwing a special celebrating event, cheerful, participative, and inclusive so that everybody can join the global discussion.
This is our year to be BOLD+BRILLIANT – without apology. We’re shining a spotlight on dazzling ideas from some of the world’s most extraordinary risk-takers and innovator. Celebrating pioneers making power moves, brilliant people who are just getting started, and those who tirelessly show up as allies and advocates.
Over the last century, we have pushed our limits and grown beyond our ancestors’ wildest dreams.
Our courage, intelligence and creativity are fueling rapid societal change, and breakthroughs in science and technology are redefining what is possible for humanity, on this earth and beyond.

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.
