About this event

Time. One of the few elements in life we yet haven't been able to control. Past. Present. Future. Acts of times long gone define who we have become today. Ideas of the past are in our time some of the biggest achievements mankind can demonstrate. Dreams, plans and actions we make today so we can built our tomorrow. And that future is unpredictable.

This year TEDx University of Piraeus invites you to a spacetime journey. This year we invite you to become a Time Voyager!
