About this event
TEDxSingapore and TEDxGreen jointly presented Singapore first large scale TEDx event and gathering of TED community in Singapore
This idea event was themed Design Ideas Worth Spreading and explored questions that affect all of us:
How can we build a better world?
Design great products?
Live a greener existence? be more creative?
Lead happier lives? create a future we can all believe in?
We featured some of the most amazing, thought-provoking ideas and TED Talks by Stefan Sagmeister, Karen Armstrong, Janis Benyus and other great TED speakers.
As a mass community activity, everyone wrote their inspired dreams on paper, folded them into paper aeroplanes and launched them in the air with a collective shout "To Ueli!" as a tribute to TED Speaker Ueli Gegenschatz who had passed on during one of his incredible feats.
Venue hosts and partner: DesignSingapore and Singapore Management University
