The challenges we face as humanity are immense: food, health, environment…
Our challenges of tomorrow are the our children’s challenges of their today. They need solutions to be able to live well. In Barcelona there are many entrepreneurs and change-makers who are working on solutions for tomorrow, solutions that surprise and inspire us. We have been looking for these extraordinary people and we are going to present them together with their ideas and their solutions for tomorrow at our event TEDxBarcelona on October 5th.
This day we will talk about the zero waste movement, how we can gamify our health, how multilingualism affects the brain, how to eliminate food waste, dogs that detect cancer, musical instruments for everyone, air quality, education in the world of medicine and how to actively use our breathing …

Each of these ideas will be presented in a 10-15 minute TEDx talk.

And – as always – this event will be a great opportunity to do networking and to connect with other restless minds in the TEDxBarcelona world.
