About this event

The theme of this years TEDx Marrakech is meant to be a little playful, with images of Monty Python’s Eric, suspended on his cross joyfully singing away in the setting sun.

However as a statement it also raises many questions.

Are positive thought always powerful?
Does having a sunny disposition make you live longer or simply drive others mad?
Do we need to balance optimism with realism, light with dark?
Do those in power control with fear and negativity?
Is an overly cautious approach to life ever a force for good?
