About this event

We have developed a lot of logic and knowledge since the industrial revolution, which have bound us and made an unbalanced society. The world asks for creative innovation urgently. As the enlightenment city of China in modern times, how could Fuzhou anticipate in this innovative world? We need imagination, which is the wellhead of discovery, invention and creativity. TEDxFuzhou plan to take three years to free imagination and lighten the spirits of Fuzhou. This is the first year, we will explore, experience and discuss what imagination is, how it works, and why it is so important.
