We are very excited to announce TEDxLeicester’s first event to be held at the National Space Centre Leicester titled: TEDxLeicester 'One Step Beyond: A Satellite Enabled future'.

Explore how satellite technology and data is being applied to innovatively solve problems for businesses and the community to take us one step beyond into the future:

Get a deeper understanding of climate change, glimpse the potential of combining big data with machine learning and experience a revolution in how we can interact with satellite data and images. Have your intuition of oceans and your perspective of ecosystems ‘blown out of the water’ and get a fascinating insight into predicting the impact of wildfires and ways to minimise their devastation in what will no doubt be a series of engaging, inspiring and innovative TEDx Talks curated to our theme.

Our Programme:

Complementary parking is provided at the National Space Centre.
