Thoughts and actions of today determine outcomes for tomorrow. Our creativity, our sparks of genius and our passions draw a picture of what we will live in the future. Is it all fixed by fate? What can we change? Do we have the power to make a stand today for a different tomorrow? One full-day of brilliant speeches and interactions with more than 15 exquisite speakers and performers. 700 thinkers and doers, from all walks of life. The 22nd of November was the day of the 6th edition of TEDxBucharest, where we took a glimpse into the future.
