On 6 December 2019, TEDxWoking returned for the fourth time to WWF-UK's award winning, state-of-the-art Living Planet Centre, for a morning of inspirational and enlightening talks.
The theme this year was 'Collaboration', and we heard from some exceptional people with great 'ideas worth sharing'.
The event was opened by Rob May, who gave his TEDxWoking Talk in 2017.
