Theme: Foundational Truths

This event occurred on

Truth is not dead. It is very much alive. Foundational Truths matter now more than ever. Truth is not something you are born with, it is something you choose and create. Truth is not unconditional, unwavering, or absolute. Truth can even evolve, grow, die, and transform, particularly when challenged with new insight. Truth is never afraid of being false.

Think about the last time you held on tightly to something you believed was an absolute truth. Was your truth growing bigger as you understood it more? Was your truth being challenged? What happens when you step outside your truths and test out a new thought?

In this year’s theme of “Foundational Truths” we seek to understand, challenge, and enlighten the frameworks of truth. Sometimes you need to let go of a truth in order to let flourish new thought.

But what is “truth”? In the spirit of TED, we believe truth is backed by tangible, well-researched and supported ideas based on factual observations.
