Our ideas search for 2018 is on!

We’re delighted to announce we’ll be back at the Canberra Theatre Centre Playhouse on Saturday 8 September for TEDxCanberra 2018. More details of our conference, including theme, program and other information will be released soon.

In the meantime, we want to hear from you. What ideas do you think need to be shared for our stage this year? To us, ‘ideas worth spreading’ are ideas that are a positive force in the world, and which somehow improve the human condition.

To submit your suggestions for ideas we should feature, complete our short survey by clicking on the button below.

Speak­ing at TEDx­Can­ber­ra Con­fer­ences

Each TEDx­Can­ber­ra event fea­tures a carefully curated selection of the region’s most innov­at­ive and inspiring ideas.

If you know someone with an idea that belongs on the TEDx­Can­ber­ra stage, or if you have an idea yourself, we want to hear from you. Submit a short email outlining who you are nominating, how we can get in touch with them, and giving an overview of the idea.

Remember, the key criterion is that you have an idea worth spreading.

TEDxCanberra Spotlight

This month, we take you back to TEDxCanberra 2013 and Tim Pearson’s talk about one of Australia’s great unsung ecological heroes – the Flying Fox. In this touching and illuminating talk, Tim argues that we should give them superstar status, and care more about these creatures and the vital work they do. Far from being a pest, the Flying Fox is highly ecologically significant, whose future is inextricably linked with our own.
