Dreams to Reality
At TEDxExeter 2016 experts in a wide range of fields from across the world came to Exeter to share their ideas and solutions to some of humanity’s most intractable problems. Jihad, communication, human rights and inequality were just some of the challenging issues that were covered over the day. Our speakers and performers were inspirational, sharing their ideas, hopes and dreams for a better world, and challenging us to turn our dreams into reality.
We brought together 900 people on the day and the livestream was watched more than 3,000 times. We know that there were at least 30 public and private viewing parties in and around Exeter and in San Francisco, New York, Chicago and Mumbai. A school in Zambia watched, as did another in Covent Garden. And people from an incredible 69 countries joined us online from as far away as Mongolia, Colombia, Lithuania and Korea as well as the United States, India, Saudi Arabia and Germany. Ideas from Exeter reaching the world!
