TEDxCERN 4th edition - 5 November 2016

TEDxCERN 4th edition – it’s a wrap! 

On 5 November, more than 300 creative thinkers and doers attended the fourth edition of TEDxCERN, as 12 fearless speakers explored the theme of ‘ripples of curiosity’. 

The event rushed the audience through an exhilarating journey of exploration and revelation. From the depths of the ocean, through cosmos and space and time, speakers became connected to one another – confiding in how they uncovered their ideas, which started as ripples of curiosity and gradually evolved. A common theme which stood out throughout was the notion that we should embrace advancements in science, technology and health, instead of fear them, but remain cautious of the hands in which they fall. 

“This year’s event blew my mind! The diversity of speakers took our audience on an incredible journey and it became so much more than a series of talks – people became immersed in the experience from the moment they took their seats” Claudia Marcelloni (TEDxCERN curator).

Talks will be available in the next couple of weeks. For now you can relive the experience through the photos on our Flickr account.
