Theme: The Return of Asia

This event occurred on
February 23, 2011
7:00pm - 11:00pm CET
(UTC +1hr)

A popular discussion as of late has been to speak of the "Rise of Asia" due to the rapid economic growth we have recently experienced in China, India and Southeast Asia. However, this is evidence of terrible historical research since "The East" has been in the center of international affairs for several millennia with the exception of period of 150 years. This is why our discussion and TEDx event will revolve around the "Return of Asia". Join us for an evening with inspiring videos of Tedtalks and interesting discussions in an attempt to change the narrow western mindset when thinking of Asia in general and of China in particular.

For example, listen to Joseph Nye explaining global power shifts, and the amazing Hans Rosling predicting precisely when China and India overtakes Western states in per capita income. We are inviting committed people who are affiliated with Asia, or just have a great interest, to an evening dedicated to Asia with main focus on China. We will discuss this great shift, its implications, importance and possibilities as well as many other things!
