University looks to the future of transport

The University's Transport Systems Hub is proud to announce the first University of Leeds TEDx event, entitled Reducing the Impact of Transport on the Environment.

TED is a non-profit think-tank devoted to ‘ideas worth spreading’, bringing together people from the worlds of technology, entertainment and design at two annual conferences. The Tedx programme is designed to give communities and organizations the opportunity to stimulate discussion through TED-like experiences at the local level.

The University's TEDx event, which will take place on 1 November 2012, will bring together a number of leading academics and experts whose work aims to contribute to a substantial reduction in emissions from transport by means of behaviour change, new technologies and new ways of travelling around our future cities. 

The event will follow the TED style of short presentations followed by discussion and audience participation with all presentations to be recorded and made available after the event.  There will be a wine reception before the event and plenty of networking opportunities during the evening.

Due to a restriction on audience size imposed by the TEDx licence, staff and student invitations will be allocated by random ballot.

Please send an email to TEDx Leeds to register interest in attending.
