The Venue – Uppsala Stadsteater

While searching for the venue, we were looking for a place that can both represent Uppsala and create the ambience that TED talks are known for. Just like the city of Uppsala, the theatre is a crossroad between old and new; history and innovation, making it an exquisite setting for ideas worth spreading.

The Idea

Poster“Who Cares?” is the theme of TEDxUppsalaUniversity 2014. With this provocative and playful approach, we want to reflect on today’s world and leave room for everyone to find their own answer.

Our aim with this theme is to seek true passion and innovative visions. We strive to find ideas and perspectives that inspire and raise awareness about issues that make an impact on ourselves and our environment. By inviting a range of speakers from different disciplines and diverse backgrounds, we aim to spark curiosity and provoke thoughts that people might be oblivious to.

We all have something that matters to us; family, the environment, career, human rights, justice, victims in wars and conflicts, or finding happiness. But do we care enough to make a change?
