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.

At the same time we, as human beings, are seeking more simplicity and connection. We are striving for breakthroughs that enable us to understand and go beyond our internal barriers, to create more meaning, purpose and fulfilment.

We are learning that, when we understand the limits, we can transcend them. 

But…where are the limits?

…who sets them?

…and where are we going next?

Bring your glasses!

For the first time, TEDxLausanne will collaborate with Visilab to help distribute your unwanted eyeglasses with people in dire need.

High in the Tibetan hills, Zanskar is a community that is largely cut off from the rest of the world.

With it’s 4,000m altitude, the local population is exposed to high levels of UV light and dust which are damaging their eyes – many of the 14,000 inhabitants have cataracts by the time they are as young as 50 years old – but your old glasses and sunglasses could help change that.

Through its collaboration with Zanskar Health Association, Visilab will ensure your old eyeglasses reach the Zanskar people and help them enjoy good eye health and sight into old age.


Give life to your old glasses

  • Bring your unwanted eyeglasses to TEDxLausanne 2019.
  • Place them in a  Visilab box in the event reception area.
  • We will be happy to receive glasses for children as well as adults.

Thank you for your support.
