The theme for this year’s TEDxGöteborg is ”Disrupting Status Quo”. At the event, you will get a closer insight into people and organizations that have done things differently from what society has been telling us is the right way to do things.

We will reveal our speakers successively. Stay tuned!

Oh, and make sure to buy a ticket while you wait.
