Theme: School's Out
Quarry Bay, Hong Kong

About this event
In a world where we are becoming increasingly competitive and parents are scrambling to fill up their kids' minds with information, have we lost sight of what learning really means?
Relevant to Hong Kong, we have to ask ourselves - are we doing the right thing for our children? Are we doing the right thing for our city? Are we doing the right thing for our future?
This year, the TEDxHongKong team will be hosting the first TEDx ED event in Asia Pacific ever. TEDxHongKongED 2013 will showcase the current state of education both in Hong Kong and around the world, to inspire teacher, student, and parent alike to look at and to explore unconventional ways to nurture a style of life-long learning.
RSVP and buy your tickets now before May 15 for a 20% early bird discount! Regular tickets will be sold for HK$350 after. Last year’s TEDxHongKong event had over 800 participants with a packed waiting list - don’t miss out, register today!
