The Future We See

TEDx Lagos is excited to partner with  TED  for its new initiative called  TED  Democracy.  We are humbled to be the only  TEDx  event from the continent of Africa in collaboration with other  TEDx  events from Brazil, United States of America, Istanbul, Kazakhstan and Ukraine.

The  TED Democracy Initiative   launched this important conversation in November, 2023 and through this  initiative is partnering with 7  TEDx  events around the world — including  TEDx Lagos  right here in Nigeria, Africa. We will showcase and celebrate African democracy champions, leadership trailblazers, innovators, dreamers and doers who will share remarkable ideas on our collaborative futures. The theme for this gathering is The Future We See. This gathering will also focus on diverse conversations about technology, health, economy, fashion, artificial intelligence, food and many more.

As democracies worldwide face mounting challenges, communities across the globe are mobilizing to reform systems and reignite civic culture. TEDxLagos is excited to bring our nation’s voices together to spark a new kind of conversation with leading thinkers, practitioners, and communities around the globe – focused on realistic pathways towards a more vibrant and equitable future.

Think artificial intelligence, innovation, tech, digitisation, sustainability. Think the strides being made locally and globally and ask yourself where you belong in this future. As the world constantly evolves, what do you see?

With this theme, we’re challenging you to not only talk about the future but also be a part of building it. This June, we are bringing together an amazing line of speakers, performers and the best audience members who will not only spark conversations that will transform minds but also shed light on the future we see in our democracy, art, business, lifestyle, food and so much more!  

We’re challenging you to ignite your spark and help create the future you see.
