TEDxEuston: LEGACY - The theme for our 10th anniversary signifies the end of the journey as we know it, and speaks to a future yet to be created by the builders, shapers and revolutionaries in our community.

For our final year, we are looking back to look forward. We will be sharing ideas and bridging the gap between the wisdom of our ancestors and the knowledge of our youth

Every journey has an end, and this is the last stop before the train changes direction.

TEDxEuston is the start of something greater.

LEGACY is where we discover it.

So we hand the flame over to you.

Inherit the spirit of TEDxEuston. Embrace the power of African ideas.
