Welcome TO TEDxANU

TEDxANU is a university organized event and we are excited about our very first upcoming 2020 event on Thursday 15 October.
TEDxANU will present COUNTDOWN featuring leading experts of the field from​ diverse background from ANU.​
We will be part of a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to the climate crisis, turning ideas into action. The goal: To build a better future by cutting greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 in the race to a zero-carbon world – a world that is safer, cleaner and fairer for everyone.​

Our Speakers

2020 was the year we were thrown a curve ball, however are we still addressing the elephant in the room? What is the state of the climate today? What is climate science saying? Is a net-zero future foreseeable? We have a fantastic collection of experts, policymakers and activists ready to share their insights on what a better future should look like and how we can go about achieving this reality. With a dash of TED’s signature blend of actionable and research backed ideas, cutting edge science we hope to inspire and push for action.


TEDxANU is a collaboration of bright young minds from the Australian National University backed by TED and funded philanthropically. Our teamwork side by side with core strategic and network partners that make our goals and vision a success. The legacy of the team is to start this event that can be continued by future stalwarts here in Australia and enact back in their respective homes.
