About this event
We are planning to host the event under the theme "Link." A number of suggestions are being made in order for our society to proceed to the next step; Communication, Empathy, Diversity, etc. But the TEDxSNU, amongst numerous factors of societal takeoff, focused on the connection between people. It is our belief that it is the "Link" between individuals, groups, fields of studies, even the third world and the developed world, that provides the basis for all those social activities which therefore leads to greater fruition and development.

He used to be a highschool teacher, until he experienced the loss of his son, who was a victim of school violence.
