This event is invite-only.

There is a great way to think in Shimane. It is called “縁(En)”. “En” means a destiny to get relationships with a person, place and so on. “En” is important and precious for traditional Japanese culture. We are supposed to think that if we meet someone and have relationships, it is because of “En.” “En” represents the connection of people and ideas, a commonality that we share. In this sense, “En” is very similar to TED because TED also connects people and ideas. That’s why I want to choose “En” as the theme.

According to traditional “En” thought, we should be thankful to “En” and be kind to each other. In this sense, it is similar to Japanese hospitality. When Japanese people hear “En”, most of them are reminded of Shimane, which suggests “En” is already associated with Shimane in Japan. However, most people around the world don’t know “En”. I want to spread this great idea and the idea of thankfulness through a TEDx event.
