About this event
The Journey to Return
What is progress? And how can it empower our humanity?
From the secrets of the natural environment from which we arise, to the values and stories that form our society; from the technologies and resources that enable modern life, to the ideas that define and protect our humanity -- or threaten it.
TEDxJakarta 2011 will be a celebration of the old and the new that remind us of the basics and take us a step closer to the truths.
Event content will be 70% in Indonesian. We will provide 100 pax of live translation ear devices for non-Indonesian speakers.
Registration for event opens 8pm August 2nd on www.tedxjkt.org
