The future you
Thursday 27 April 2017 to Friday 28 April 2017
British Council Colombo Library

Meet the co-creator of Siri, the founder of the world’s largest hedge fund, a Nobel-winning researcher who helped discover how we age, the head of the World Bank, and one of the greatest athletes of all time. TED is thrilled to announce the speaker lineup for TED2017, with a mix of illustrious names and the up-and-coming minds who are creating the future.

What does the future hold for you, for me, for us? In 2017, TED will balance a hard look at the seismic shifts that are altering the way the world works with insights into how we can foster personal learning, growth and empowerment. The result: You'll leave inspired and prepared for the change that's ahead.

Explore the most pressing questions of our time and to imagine what our shared future might look like. From how we'll work to how we'll connect and interact to how we'll collectively thrive in a world full of change, we'll ask – and try to answer – the big questions of the moment.

What is a live event?

A TEDxLive is where TEDxColombo hosts an event to watch the official TED Conference through a live webcast. This came about when TED wished to make the TED Conference more open, more global, and its impact more immediate. They wondered if it could ignite communities around the world to engage with – and build on – the TED Conference experience while it happened live.

Please note that there will be no live speakers at this event.

When: 27-28 April 2017 from 06.30p.m. - 08.30p.m.

Where: British Council Colombo Library
