Through the sessions in TEDxGalicia 2011 we want to inspire to reflection on fundamental questions as: the reality behind what see, a complex future, socially accepted frauds, inaccurate sciences, different ways to perceive the reality,…

Easy approaches to a complex reality, proposes a trip which facilitate the interpretation of what is happening around us and the intimate relations between multiple variables whixh could result "non obvious" a priori.

Imagine - Think -Create - Share. These four blocks of contents present an itinerary of creation of knowledge and change that proposes: the imagination as a base, thinking as a tool, creation as the objective and sharing as the key point to create value.
