“What is wrong with the world?” We regularly find ourselves exclaiming this sentence. If you read/watch/scroll the news, its very easy to believe that the world is drowning in uncertainty and seemingly unsolvable problems. What appears to us are the road blocks of political shifts and social changes, and the potholes of religious violence and economic imbalances. However, behind these very breaks – technological, scientific, biomedical progresses gain speed.
Most problems today seem scary. It may seem like the world is going to end soon. But actually many of these problems can be easily tackled – solutions for these exist! Its just that they may be unseen, unheard, unscaled or unfunded. Never in history has there been a time when it’s been so easy to find solutions to problems that plague us, its just that we have been blinded temporarily. How the road ahead will turn out depends greatly on the narratives we chose to apply – to understand today’s needs, to imagine tomorrow’s and to walk with a collective and responsible way forward.
At TEDxChennai we have a role to play here. So for TEDxChennai 2018, we are going to carefully curate conversations and experiences that can bring out the best of social, creative, technological and scientific developments that are driving our future forward. We are bringing together the crazy ones and the quiet ones for a journey that awakens them. Its time to bring that change in perspective forward – to fix the blocks that slow us down and to march on ahead.
The next revolution won’t be one where we bring out the guns. The next revolution is one where we bring our ideas.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxChennai where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxChennai event, TED Talks, videos and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. You can get to know more about TED here.
