TEDxUsask and be what the world needs sign

Universities play a vital role in nurturing, empowering, and unleashing the curiosity that will allow us to imagine a brighter, more sustainable future. To face humanity’s greatest challenges and opportunities we need to ask tough questions, push boundaries, and invigorate impact for meaningful change with and for our communities.


USask is home to pioneers in discovery who are improving lives, expanding opportunities, strengthening social cohesion and protecting the environment. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, they will take to the TEDx stage with compelling stories of ambition and achievements, sharing their voice and vision to be what the world needs.

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 TEDxUniversity of Saskatchewan, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxUniversity of Saskatchewan 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.
