For more than 50,000 years, Homo Sapiens ruled the world.

“Wise man” dominated thanks to the ability to cooperate and communicate effectively in big groups. We were able to build cities, write books, create incredible technology. We solved many important challenges that have been facing us.

As the pace of human evolution continues to accelerate, we can’t help but wonder: What will our lives be like at the end of this century? Will our lives be completely changed by the next technological, environmental, social or genetical evolution? Will Homo Sapiens continue being the world’s dominant species? Or will we evolve into a completely new species soon?

This year  TEDxLausanne is focused on exploring all these questions as well as new ways of addressing our dreams and concerns about the future.

Get inspired

We handpicked a selection of speakers and artists to highlight these questions, addressing education, information technologies, society, science…

We expect around 12 talks and performances over the afternoon and will be posting the details about our line up progressively in the upcoming weeks.

Stay tuned!

Share ideas

In addition to the talks and performances, TEDxLausanne 2018 offers numerous ways to meet new people, network and share ideas, would it be over the buffet or at one of our activities.

For the innovation aficionados, we also showcase local startups, innovative products, and companies.
