TEDx Warwick 09

Our inspiration for TEDx Warwick ’09 is simple, just like TED. Why not empower students with ideas of the future in which they will live so that they can carry on the tradition by giving birth to new ideas about the future beyond theirs. This captures the essence of our event and we hope that you can see in it what we, and a strong following around the world see - that ideas drive the human race.
