About this event

TEDxThessaloniki 2013 is about the “power of +syn”. “Syn” is the Greek word for “plus” and also a prefix found in so many powerful words such as synergy, synthesis, symbiosis and synaesthesis. “Syn” has also the same function as “co-” in words like collaboration, coexistence, contribution and combination. The spirit of all the above words is the one we aim to spread. In our effort to shed light on the importance of adding one, or more, ‘syn’ in our daily life, we will discover together the added value of thinking and acting positively. TEDxThessaloniki 2013 is a synthesis of different people, experiences and attitudes. Coming from a vast field of different backgrounds, such as educa- tion, volunteering, entrepreneurship, art and technology, our speakers will spread ideas on how the power of ‘plus’ can be realized. Our main sources of inspiration for this year’s theme were not only the positive energy that the TEDxThessaloniki event spreads every year to its audience, but also our need to showcase and integrate in our daily life positive thinking and actions, needed now possibly more than ever. Today, let’s embark together on a journey to explore the power of +syn.
