Speakers Corner’s varied and rich catalogue of unique and inspirational personalities is well represented at this year’s TED Global Summer conference in Edinburgh. Speakers in the Scottish capital include economist Tim Harford; historian Niall Ferguson and conductor Charles Hazlewood.
The invitation-only conference is dedicated to "ideas worth spreading" and previous speakers have included former US presidents and Nobel Prize winners.
‘Riveting talks by remarkable people’
TED Global 2011 will explore questions in engineering, cooking, sustainability, medicine, and more unusually, consciousness, traffic and flowers! The eclectic speakers are each given 18 minutes in front of the audience, to convey exciting new ideas such as Robert Hammond’s Park in the Sky – an off-the-ground Park in New York, and Jonathan Drori’s extraordinary ways of flowering plants!
