About this event

The idea of TEDxSJTU is based on the power of action. The theme of the event is the voice of action. We want to convey the idea that what really matters is what you have done, not only what you have said. If you got an idea, just do it, take action to realize it. Our belief is that"Idea wort spreading, and action worth spreading too". We have invited several speakers with different background ranging from technology, social sector, business, art, etc. to share their stories and ideas of action.
