UCLA Conversations with TEDx Speakers, via zoom

During this COVID-19 pandemic, we conducted a series of one-hour conversations around big ideas, featuring selected speakers from our TEDxUCLA series. This is a free series, conducted with a host, moderator, and featured speaker. The series is taking a break for the summer, and the current round of talks are posted for your viewing.

Due to COVID-19, the 2020 TEDxUCLA conference has been cancelled for May 30th, a new date will be announced once we have one.

Due to the risk of COVID-19 and the necessity for social distancing, TEDxUCLA 2020 is cancelled for May 30th, 2020.  We are monitoring the situation and will make a decision on a future date as soon as it is feasible.

TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world.  However, in these times, community safety comes first. We appreciate your understanding and we will be back in full force when it is save to do so. Follow us on social at @TEDxUCLA for global ideas throughout the year.
