The force of talent, skills and capabilities hiding in each of us is changing our social environment and helping the development of our country. In recent years, outbreak of success of professionals in various fields has been inspiring us to be more and more creative. This year TEDxUlaanbaatar’s theme is MOMENTUM which is the mass of the object multiplied by its velocity. Momentum is the law of nature that reminds us about the joint force which depends on every single person’s strength and speed. Momentum will guide us to move forward together through the path of development, discuss together, and solve these issues together. And this will bring us so many opportunities and save much more time than moving individually. Would it be harder to implement MOMENTUM in our social lives than simply understanding its scientific concept in physics?
