Pillanatok alatt húzták ki alólunk a talajt. Eddigi életünktől teljesen elkülönítve találtuk magunkat. Ami addig természetesen volt szabad és egyértelmű, elérhetetlenné vált. Közben kitárult az online tér minden generációnak, és lett benne szabadság mindenkinek. Majd pedig visszakaptuk a fizikai szabadságunk egy részét.
Szabad volt az életünk a világjárvány előtt? Másképp látjuk, másképp éljük, másképp mondjuk és másképp hisszük.
2020-ban az egyik legfontosabb értékünk a szabadság lett.
Idén is olyan előadókat mutatunk be a közösségünknek, akik példaként járnak előttünk, közöttünk. Szabad embereket, nőket és férfiakat, akik másképp gondolkodnak, másképp cselekednek, és ezzel bennünket is változásra, tettekre inspirálnak.
Hogyan élhetsz szabadon a saját életedben? Erre adnak válaszokat, mind-mind másképp.
Szabadon rád, mindenkire bízva azt, hogy te, ő, mi együtt mit viszünk magunkkal mindabból, ami ebben a történelmi korszakban volt és van – ami 2020. november 14-én megtörténik a TEDxLibertyBridgeWomen színpadán.
Csatlakozz hozzánk személyesen vagy online, és alkossuk együtt a jövőt!
Szabadon? Másképp.
Velünk tartasz?

Anikó Baji

health media communication specialist
Anikó Baji, an emergency and triage nurse, worked in patient care for 24 years when she graduated in communication and media. This career choice was guided by the lack of communication and the consumable quality of information in health care. The ACUTE Section communication community has become one of the best-known health communication forums on Facebook over the past five years, quickly developing non-policy, understandable information based on partnership and dialogue. Launched two years ago, the C-Track blog writes short articles on acute patient care. The curved mirror and the “live with me” style can be consumed by lay readers as it leads them into a world unknown to them with proper sensitization and dissemination.

Anna Szabó T.

poet, writer
I am a poet, the poem is my life. I believe that it is not a luxury product, but a help to life, as basic as comfortable shoes or good glasses. The three most important functions of the poem are to teach you to watch, to stop time, and to give you strength: you can save our lives in our difficult moments — as happened with a corner scientist named Mawson when he hung in death in an iceberg, or with me when I was in crisis as a teenager. He who carries poems in his head and heart: a free man.

Even as an actor, I was always busy solving problems of public affairs, and in 2018 I felt that these problems had outgrown the walls of the theater and I didn’t want to talk about public affairs through a role, but in E / 1.

The photo itself is free will, because it mediates between heaven and earth, it requires a whole person, it stops time for a moment. The photo is about life, leaving it free within the limits set by ourselves, creating order and, from it, order of values. The photo goes beyond hypocrisy, sometimes making sense later. The photo is life itself… ”- somewhere in Gyenes Kata's own world, the most valuable part of which is her son, Andris.

Orsolya dr. Temesvári

lawyer, blogger
I'm Orsi. In 2018, an accident set boundaries that seemed invincible to me. At first I seemed easier to give up, but in the end I decided: I chose survival. Because of the immobility caused by the injury, I found true freedom in the innermost corner of my personality. The burdens I carry with me often obscure my image of myself, so in order to put it down, I want to talk about the most serious. About how I keep the woman in me in the most vulnerable.
