TEDxLusaka will hold its first climate-focused event on Saturday 30 September, 2023.


In 2023, TED announced, Countdown – the first climate-focused event, to share ideas, innovations and solutions on the climate crisis affecting all corners of the globe.

TEDxLusaka was one of twelve – and the only event in Africa – invited to hold its own event of this type. The Lusaka event will feature talks delivered by over twenty thought leaders and experts from different sectors, such as agriculture, ecology, and anthropology. These speakers will share their ideas on climate adaptations relevant to Zambia. Speakers are yet to be announced.


The TEDxLusaka 2023 event is supported by the European Union through the EU4MULIMI programme, the main agricultural programme of the European Union in Zambia.


The event will be held at the NIPA Conference Centre from 9 to 17hrs. Tickets are on sale for K200. The ticket includes delicious food and drinks from vendors who specialise in sustainable food items.


TEDxLusaka has held almost-annual conferences since 2010 to share ideas that challenge perceptions or the status quo or bring innovation and creativity to Lusaka, and Zambia, at large to create a better world for all.
