Kavaraipettai, Tamil Nadu

We at TEDxRMKEC believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. The willingness to see beyond our present, look ahead of us, see the future from where we are — with new eyes, consider creativity as resilient for the future and declare the collective good as the ultimate end, is what drives us into a conversation of new Perspectives, Creativity & Social Impact. We understand that creativity can only thrive with the right mindset, an enabling environment and an understanding of what the person is trying to express.
"Sea of Voices" signifies the sea of unspoken ideas and also the unheard voices of the people with intriguing ideas from diverse backgrounds. TEDxRMKEC will bring together extraordinarily unconventional, crucial and out-of-the-box ideas of the optimistic minds of our local community. We assure to bring together idea-focused talks that cover a large array of subjects, to foster learning and inspiration among the members of the live audience.
