Bucharest, București

All of 2017 has been filled with talk about turning points, events without precedent or news regarding changes which affect communities. All of 2017 has been for us here at Cambridge School of Bucharest a year of changes and a year of insights and evolution. Personal changes, personal losses, personal revolutions. All of it has been important for each of us and for all of us in ways we may not understand yet. And this TEDxCambridgeSchoolofBucharest is here to celebrate this new perspective on life: there are moments, encounters, decisions and choices that take less than a minute to fix and completely change your entire life, past and future.
