On 19 January 2018 TEDx is coming to Corsham and Ci’s CEO Rachel Neaman will be speaking about how digital technology is changing society’s rules.
TEDx was created to support the overall TED mission of ‘ideas worth spreading’, and supports independent organisers to create TED-like events in their communities. Since the beginning of the TEDx programme in 2009, around 15,000 events have been held around the world and videos of them have been viewed one billion times.
The theme of the Corsham event is Changing the Rules, and it aims to spark conversations and connections across the community. It’s been organised by Libby Forsyth, a sixth-form student at Corsham School, in conjunction with the Pound Arts Centre and will also involve other speakers discussing their own experiences of changing the rules.
Rachel commented that:
“It’s a wonderful opportunity to talk about the impact that technology is having on everyone’s lives and how it is not just changing the rules, but ripping up the rule book.
Our work at the Ci is to make sense of the new landscape for the benefit of all and to show how communities can write new rules to create a trusted and inclusive society”.
Ci’s in-house Creative Team are making videos of the speakers for submitting to the TEDx platform and we will post Rachel’s talk – ‘Technology Rules? Not OK…’ – here when the video is live.
