TEDxCaleaVictoriei ED

Following the concept of ideas worth spreading, we embark on a journey for a TED ED event that envisages to empower ideas that change mentalities, attitudes and action and mobilizes towards activism.

Thus we propose a TED ED event which will include a selection of motivational speeches given by inspirational activists, thinkers and practitioners from Romania as well as the future enhancement of a community of people who share similar educational ideas and passions.

Why a TED ED event?
Because we want to show that good things are happening in education, learning and innovation in Romania, things that have the potential to transform the educational paradigm in the country.

Because good ideas deserve to be shared and can be a catalyst for a transformation process.

Because we envisage the capitalization of 100 motivated persons to produce social change within Romania. The 100 are professionals from various fields, which are involved in projects / educational initiatives and are motivated to make a stand for education.

The event will consist in motivational speeches in the form of lessons worth spreading.

All these lessons, and a few extra networking activities will be put on stage in Control Club in Bucharest, starting from 10 a.m and ending at 16 p.m. on October 07, 2014.
