First student salon of the year. Exploring the importance of representation and activism, the relationship between technology and geopolitics and the power of community in changing the world.
Revival 2021 is a collection of online TEDx talks which will explore the challenges we face today, and offer creative solutions to overcome them.
Given the impact that COVID-19 had on lives, livelihoods and local communities, this online series aimed to host speakers with uplifting, inspirational and innovative visions of a brighter future.
As TEDxWarwick's very first all-online conference, Revival 2021 offered a unique version of our annual series and redefined the notion of a TEDxWarwick event.
TEDx From Home
TEDx From Home is a brand new online series from TEDxWarwick, which aims to provide comprehensive and stimulating conversations through online video discussions.
With TEDx From Home, TEDxWarwick embarks on a new path to amplify voices with valuable ideas. We believe that 2020 should be a year of change. That is why we are dedicating our new online series to drawing attention to pressing global issues and possible solutions.
Creativity within Crisis
Creativity. Innovation. Creation. The crises shaping our society have served to spur on so many young and impassioned individuals to seek a solution and encourage change in so many aspects of life. TEDxWarwick believes that it is this creative resolve and dedicated perseverance in the face of adversity that will aid humanity as we enter a fraught new decade.
Creativity, and the results it inspires, will be the ultimate decider in whether our future thrives, or falls apart at the seams. Tick, tick, tick…
Fear. It’s not your favourite word, is it? Those four little letters conjure up a different response in all of us. Perhaps they illicit a childhood memory you’ve tried too hard to shake. Perhaps it’s the fear of speaking out that you’re fighting to overcome. Or maybe you’re undergoing an ongoing battle with fear and anxiety right now.
We at university often find ourselves at a similar crossroads with the need to make a decision about our future: what job do we want? What kind of person do we want to be? What do we see for our future?
Architects of Tomorrow
TEDxWarwick will be hosting the minds behind 3D printing bones, flying taxis and electric airplanes, the biggest cyber security company in the world, the biggest portfolio of social medias in the world (Apple, Nike, Amazon, …). But also, an EMMY award movie director, the foremost space lawyer, a serial entrepreneur, a crypto currency creator, the chairman of Slowfood UK, and much more…
We all have moments when we lose track of our identity. We forget about our goals, disconnect from our roots, send our priorities into disarray; experiences tumble out of our hands and out of control, and we learn nothing from them.
Thinking in Green
The United Nations tells us we have 12 years left until climate change becomes irreversible. Climate change awareness is gaining traction as researchers and activists fight for recognition of the urgent need for concerted global action.
How can the design of a desk or lampshade change the way we work? Can we design a language that can be understood by every human on the planet? Should our democracies be redesigned to return back to their true purpose?
Dare to Defy
Defiance. Refusing to obey. Striding into the unknown. In today’s society, we face a plethora of expectations, stereotypes, and standards which impede the development of our individuality. But what if we rejected these externally imposed conditions? What if we defied societal standards? What if we chose to live free of expectations?
