In 2018 TEDxFulbrightCanberra will have as theme "Power & Wisdom," inspired in these words of Senator J William Fulbright: “Science has radically changed the conditions of human life on earth. It has expanded our knowledge and our power, but not our capacity to use them with wisdom".

TEDxFulbrightCanberra is being made possible thanks to funding from the U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Section, the support of individual and institutional partners, and the enthusiastic participation of a group of current and former Fulbright scholars who have volunteered for this event.
