We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.


TED is an annual event, which brings together the world’s leading thinkers and doers to share ideas that matter in any discipline. In this spirit of ‘Ideas Worth Spreading’, TED created TEDx: a programme of local, independently organised events, where live speakers and TED Talks videos combine to spark discussion amongst local communities all across the globe.


At TEDxCambridgeUniversity, we are known for creating two things: a Conference, and a Community. We host one highly anticipated Conference annually, where live Speakers and TED Talks videos combine to explore a range of new, important, and often little-heard ideas and perspectives. In addition, our series of smaller, dinner-party style Salon events provide a chance to continue conversations and explore in-depth ideas between annual Conferences.

Our aim is to connect people who share an interest in ideas, personal development, and forward thinking from across the university.

Students, professors, postgrads, undergrads, Erasmus, scientists, arts and humanities alike – it was a pleasure to have you!

The 2019 Main Conference theme was Turn the Page.

Thank you to everyone who joined us

We hope you enjoyed the Talks, and that the ideas we shared move you to change the world around you.

Stay tuned for news about next year’s conference by following us on Social Media and joining our mailing list!

At TEDxCambridgeUniversity we are committed to building a truly inclusive, equitable and diverse community,
and welcome everyone of any background to attend and participate in our events.
