In Polish language “gatunek” means – species, variety, type, brand, quality, kind … - it is very open to interpretation and very abstract. It leaves the great space for wide range of topics and speakers.
The dialogue is one of the crucial aspects of communication between species (and not only human being)
The dialogue can be seen and practised in diverse range:
- In life in general
- In science
- In society
- In culture
- In business
So the communication and the dialogue between species can build web connections and bridges to innovate and to create ideas that are worth to be spread around the world and the TEDxers.

Topics of ACROSS VARIETIES take into consideration and connect people open-minded with the spirit to share their knowledge and experience in the spirit of TEDx events
