TEDxUCT is here because we believe that ideas alone are not enough, they need a platform to be spread. When we bring ideas together with our community, they are powerful beyond imagination. We hope to stimulate conversations, learn together, and finally act together. TEDxUCT strives to cultivate a culture of idea-creation and idea-sharing in the UCT community. By stimulating conversations and providing a platform to harness the knowledge and skills across various disciplines, we will inspire and motivate people to act together in creative and innovative ways to build a better world. Welcome to the world of TED.

TEDxUCT 2015: Grow Up!
The timeless questions of growing up.
Cape Town is a constantly changing playground - full of challenging obstacles and experiences. How do we grow up, grow out, grow better, within it? As we swing from one challenge to the next, we contemplate what it means to move from one stage to another. Children and adults, students and professionals, people on different journeys, with different goals all confront the inevitable objective to move forward. Growing up is more than just losing teeth or moving out of your parent’s house. Growing up is about cultivating awareness and engaging with communities. What does growing up mean to you?

About TED & TEDx
In 1984 a group of people from the worlds of Technology, Entertainment and Design gathered in California to share their work, passions, interests and dreams for a better world. What they stumbled upon in that single conference was a realisation that good ideas need to interact to become great innovations and inspirations- not just inside conference centres- but across continents, cultures, languages, ages and professions.
Today, TED is a non-profit organisation devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. The TED community believes passionately and persistently in the power of interconnected ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. And it has spread: both through international biannual TED events and through a free TED website that earns 300 million views every day. TEDx events are smaller, localized events that are run independently, on a community-by-community basis.
