TEDxSingapore celebrated its 3rd anniversary by curating it's 15th idea event since our launch on 15 April 2009. We partnered with the newly-launching MAX Atria @ Singapore EXPO to host and curate what is our most aspirational TEDxSingapore event to date.
"Inspiring Ideas To The Max" celebrates our human spirit and potential.
Our innate drive has propelled us to heights of truly amazing and inspiring human endeavours, achievements and imaginations. How will we continue to strive to better ourselves, to maximise our fullest potential as individuals, as a people and as a species?
As we look upon our journey, we increasingly realise that our pursuit now requires us to equally seek "Inspiring Ideas To The Min" Can we eliminate disease, hunger, exploitation? How can we reduce our reliance on fast-depleting resources like food, energy, water? Are we willing to achieve our own greatness at the expense of other people, other nations, our planet, and the well-being our children for whom we create the future?
Max or Min? If less is the new more, can we truly desire to have more of less?
Will our legacy be Greatness or Greed?
What deeply matters to you?
What do you want in life?
What will you do?
