When we think of our future and trying to figure out the right direction, we find that almost all of our projections into the future link with Education. It’s about our next generation, what knowledge they learn, what skill they have and most importantly, what kind of people they will become, and this, essentially decides our future.
In his first TED Talk, Sir Ken Robinson said that we cannot see the future, but children can. Our task is make sure when they see it, they can make something of it.
It’s a calling for us at TEDxXiguan, we decided to apply for this special liscence of TEDx events - TEDxXiguanED (Education) - to do a conference only about Education, this will also be the first TEDx ED event in mainland China. This is not a lecture about education, it’s a reflection and discussion about future. We carefully curated our speakers, refine their speech drafts time and time again; we will also carefully select our audience, only to make sure everyone come to our event has their own ideas and willing to share with others. Also they will be able to take what they make of at our event back to their fields, to make decisions about our shared future.
After preparing for almost a year, finally this exciting conversation will start, on June 6th, at Art 289 Space.
Same as all TEDx events, all speeches will be recorded and made available online for free. Because of limit on audience size, we will select live audience base on your application. Only the ones receive payment link and successfully made payment can come join us during the event. Please click on “Read More” at end of this page for more information.
