Welcome on board!
For more than 50,000 years, Homo Sapiens ruled the world. “Wise man” dominated thanks to the ability to cooperate and communicate effectively in big groups. We were able to build cities, write books, create incredible technology. We solved many important challenges that have been facing us.
As the pace of human evolution continues to accelerate, we can’t help but wonder: What will our lives be like at the end of this century?
What is TEDxLausanne?
Since 2010, the TEDxLausanne community seeks to extend the TED experience at a regional level.

We are a team of passionate volunteers who are curious about everything and aim to promote ideas worth spreading in Lausanne and in Switzerland.
We celebrate human inventiveness, creativity, and resourcefulness while promoting a well-intended, positively oriented mindset.
By joining or supporting TEDxLausanne, you contribute to
create synergies between innovators, forward-thinkers, and agents of change in Lausanne and everywhere in the world, inspiring positive actions to change our lives for the better.
What is TEDx?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxLausanne, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxLausanne event, TED Talks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
