As the theme of TEDxCUHK 2017 annual conference, ‘Sound (un)heard’ will bring out ideas and avocations to the audience, especially the ones that are ‘soundless’. Minorities, environmental conservation, technologies, you name it. Together with the participants, we work to turn up the volume of issues people usually are not aware of, and to make unheard sounds, heard.
