Webcast a TEDxCERN live event on 20 November


Since 2013, CERN has held three ground-breaking TEDx events, each with a live audience of 1,000 people, thousands more watching online and a view count on social media exceeding 10 million.

All Ecsite members are invited to take part in the 2018 edition by hosting a live webcast on 20 November.

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world’s largest and most respected laboratories for scientific-research. This year CERN will host its 5th edition of TEDxCERN on Tuesday 20 November 2018, 14:00-18:30. This exciting live event will take place at Bâtiment de Forces Motrices in Geneva, with worldwide webcast events and a global audience.

This year TEDxCERN explores the Elephant in the Room, a concept defined as an obvious problem that is being ignored. It will explore the kind of transformative scientific innovation that is impacting the world we live in and tackle the incertitude of humanity’s destiny as a species. Where are we going? Will we destroy ourselves? Will we create new selves? Talks are in English.

All you need to host a webcast is a suitable location - your institute, university, school, library, hospital, museum… invite colleagues, friends and members and simply tune in to the TEDxCERN webcast!
