Thank you for your support this year, and if you attended TEDxBristol on 17 November at Bristol Old Vic, thank you for playing an important part in an incredible day.
 
#ReflectRethinkReboot was all about taking moments to honestly Reflect on where we are at with some of humanity’s biggest challenges, Rethink how we approach them and Reboot right now with tangible, actionable change.
 
We'll be back in 2020 with a programme packed with diverse voices and positive action. In the meantime please share your ideas for next year and memories of this year with us on social channels – we’d love to hear from you.

I’m going to be blunt and presume that the majority of humans aren’t doing it for pro-creation purposes, but that we have sex because of the something that is much more… exciting.” @stephanie_persephone Sketchnote credit @leodo_uk ???????? #TEDxBristol #ReflectRethinkReboot #Bristol #bristol247 #bristollife #bristoligers #sex #sexEd #sexeducation #pleasurenotporn #education

A Jackson Pollock of data and that is effectively what your digital legacy looks like if you don’t curate it.” @death.io @wiseall Sketchnote credit @leodo_uk ???????? #TEDxBristol #ReflectRethinkReboot #Bristol #bristol247 #bristollife #bristoligers #death #socialmedia #tech #bristolstartups #digitaldeath

tedxbristol “Slavery is a massive problem in the world at the moment, what do they say, between 20 and 30 million? Slaves in factories, farms, nail bars, brothels, car washes, but if you’re on land there is some chance someone is looking out for you, factories inspected, brothels raided, modern slavery laws enacted, but a slave at sea... in the remote ocean?” Sketchnote credit @leodo_uk ???????? #TEDxBristol #ReflectRethinkReboot #Bristol #bristol247 #bristollife #bristoligers #fisheries #fishing #sea #slavery #antislavery

All I can say is that we did not realise what we were doing at the time. Well some did!
