We believe that the world of tomorrow is something that you build today.
We believe in the human kind ability to contribute to this change.
We believe it is essential to think right now about the ways we have to change the world.

To help us meet these objectives, The curator of TEDxESCP have selected 5 themes.
Do developments and innovations in the field of health will enable us to age well and to age better?
The benevolent and humanistic enterprise, the participative management, how to make sure that the work rhymes with the blooming of the personnel and the realization of oneself while actively contributing to the economic development of the company?
The smart city, between myth and reality, can our environment be reorganized to create a collaborative city in which eco-responsible citizens evolve?
Does education and training facilitate the emergence of the empowered and responsible men and women who contribute to the evolution of humanity?
Finally, is it not the position of the Human that must evolve if we want to meet our goal?
If all these questions concern you, then participate with us on November 23 at TEDx ESCP « Be the change ».
