TEDxQUT: 2021 Humanity

TEDxQUT is back for 2021 and will be exploring the theme Humanity.

For 2021, the theme was selected based on common elements from the speaker applications. This year, we saw an overwhelming number of applications that referenced ideas of connection, community and inclusivity. With these concepts considered, we are proud to announce that the theme for TEDxQUT 2021 is "Humanity."

This year will see QUT students, staff, alumni and community members come together to grow the TED mission: ideas worth sharing. The event will provide a platform for the QUT community to share their ideas as a way to initiate deeper conversation and discussion.

TEDxQUT 2021 is a full day, live event as we recognise our role in developing and spreading ideas to change the world.
