Heads of School Georgia Bolton and Mateusz Kapustka have secured a TEDx licence for Downside. 

Securing the licence has been a rewarding but challenging process, involving hard work, dedication and time, something as Heads of School, Georgia and Mateusz are no novices to.

A grassroots initiative created in the spirit of TED’s mission to research and discover ‘ideas worth spreading’, the aim of TEDx programmes is to bring the essence of TED to local communities around the world.

The first Downside TEDx event will be for fellow pupils on 13th March. Its theme ‘This is Tomorrow’ reflects the passion that Georgia and Mateusz have for social responsibility and the desire to change decisions they make to help shape a more sustainable future.
