TEDxCanberra line-up announced

Established in 2010, TEDxCanberra is a volunteer-run, non-profit ideas event that brings the internationally recognised internationally renowned TED brand to Canberra to focus on global issues and challenges currently facing society.

Promising fascinating concepts, rich connections and deep context across the areas of science, art, music, technology, inter­na­tional devel­op­ment, social jus­tice and design just to name a few, TEDxCanberra returns in September 2012 with ‘An Optimistic Challenge’ – a series of talks that address the need to combat complexity, con­flict, cri­sis and self-interest in favour of preparedness and positive problem-solving in an ever-changing society.

Presenters include: Karen Bar­low (ABC reporter and adventurer); Bliss (hip-hop dance crew);  Leslie Can­nold (human­ist and ethicist); Andrew Jas­pan (co-founder of The Conversation); Scott Leggo (envi­ron­men­tal photographer); David Lind­berg (finance indus­try expert), Greg Mews (urban­ist) and more.
