TEDxSydney returns to in-person format after three years


TEDxSydney will hold its first in-person event at Sydney Town Hall on August 5, marking a return of its in-person main event in three years.

TEDxSydney 2022 will explore the theme IMPRINT.

“As a global community, we have been forced to do a lot of reckoning over the past two years,” the organisers said in a statement.

“Our relationship to the future has been radically transformed. No longer a place where our hopes, travel plans and high-tech inventions co-exist; suddenly ‘the future’ has become somewhere unpredictable and unfamiliar.

“As we rebuild and re-emerge, there is an opportunity to evaluate what futures can evolve from this.”

The line-up of TEDxSydney 2022 speakers spans business to science, culture and tech and includes Nicky Sparshott, CEO of Unilever Australia & New Zealand and Global CEO of luxury retailer, T2 Tea, and Associate Professor David J. Garrett, research scientist and CEO of Carbon Cybernetics.
