This event occurred on

Lages, Santa Catarina

They say that we are shaped by our experiences, the way we were raised and our culture guide our behavior patterns. These are our mental models, the way we interpret the world. We act with the logic of the past and lost opportunity to blaze new trails.

We are able to change our perception and find new solutions to old problems, seek opportunities where others do not see. Our mental models are constantly evolving and through interaction with the environment, people will reformulate their views, it is important to live in a world with so much transformation.

The TEDxLages invites you to undress this old world and use of new mental models to look at the world from another perspective, breaking paradigms, immobilizing his life in the construction of new ideas.
