TEDxGöteborg organizes four types of events: a Salon event with streamed talks, a Salon event with live speakers, the Main event, and a TEDx Live event. At all our events, we encourage everyone attending to talk to at least one new person. The talks – streamed and live ones – are a source of inspiration, but the interaction with your fellow spectators is just as important. Who knows what ideas might come to life with the help of a little interaction with a stranger?
The TEDxGöteborg Main event is usually a full day packed with live speakers ranging from your next-door neighbour to world-famous scientists, performances, guided sessions to discuss ideas and make new acquaintances, streamed TED talks, meetings with our partners, and other surprises. Here is an event example:
Disrupting Status Quo
In 2019, the theme was "Disrupting Status Quo". At the event, we got 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.
At a TEDxGöteborg Salon event with streamed talks, you will watch two to four streamed TED talks on a specific topic, and be guided to discuss related questions in small groups. A TEDxGöteborg Salon event with live speakers will have as many as four speakers. On these occasions, we also stream TED talks and facilitate discussions within the audience. Here is an event example:
What the TECH?!
In 2021, TEDxGöteborg hosted "What the TECH?!". This TEDx event presented a series of talks on the future and innovations of technology.
