Bristol is counting down the days to the much-anticipated TEDx event, being held on Thursday 8th September at M-Shed, Bristol. TED events provide a global platform for ‘ideas worth spreading’, bringing together people and ideas from Technology, Entertainment and Design. TEDx events give communities the opportunity to host local independent events that spread world-changing ideas. The theme for the Bristol event is ‘The World Around Us’, with particular focus on innovation, creativity and sustainability. Speakers include Wendy Stephenson, CEO of The Converging World, who will be talking about our work and how people can support our buzzbnk project to install a wind turbine in India through social impact loans.Tickets for TEDx Bristol are now sold out, but the entire event will be screened live on the TEDx Bristol website and at various locations in Bristol – see the TEDx Bristol website for details.
