About this event

~HELLENIC (Ελληνικά)~

Το TEDxYouth@Pamvotis διοργανώνει το πρώτο TEDxYouth@PamvotisLive αναμεταδίδωντας το TEDGlobal 2013 που θα λάβει μέρος στο Εδιμβούργο.

"Είμαστε στη μέση μιας παγκόσμιας ανακατανομής. Η τεχνολογία εισβάλλει στη βιολογία και την κοινωνία. Η δύναμη και η εξουσία αναδιανέμονται. Τα σύνορα αλλάζουν - ή εξαφανίζονται. Ελπίδες και ανησυχίες συγκρούονται. Ένας νέος κόσμος αναδύεται στη διασταύρωση των μια φορά διαχωρισμένων πραγματικοτήτων, και ό, τι νομίζουμε πως ξέρουμε μπορεί απλά να είναι λάθος. Το TEDGlobal 2013 θα φέρει σε επαφή όσους μας προκαλούν να σταματήσουμε για λίγο και να Σκεφτούμε Ξανά (Think Again)."

~ENGLISH (Αγγλικά)~

TEDxYouth@Pamvotis organizes the first TEDxYouth@PamvotisLive event broadcasting the TEDGlobal 2013 which will take place in Edinburgh.

"We are in the midst of a global remix. Technology intrudes into biology and society. Power and authority are redistributed. Boundaries shift -- or disappear. Hopes and anxieties collide. A new world is emerging at the intersection of once-separated realities, and everything we think we know might just be wrong. TEDGlobal 2013 will bring together those who challenge us to pause for an instant and Think Again."
