“gaze at Japan from the world ~after a year from the disaster~”

The first ever TEDx event in Hokkaido prefecture with intention of making a larger event every year. This time we was open to public without any invitation on the basis of first come first served style. Large marketing on Social network the ideas will include introducing the philosophy of TED and its strength of global community.

The theme was March 11 Earthquake and Nuclear crisis involving professional speakers to share ideas, experience and their contribution to reconstruction after a year of double whammy disaster which left over 20,000 people missing and dead.

All the speakers performed their talks on English to show the importance of English language to focus Globalization however multilingual interpretation keynotes will be handed to to the attendees. The general idea was also to conclude encouraging Japanese citizens to perform on stage in English language.

The event was well disciplined, TED like conference where smoking and eating during the show was strictly prohibited, Taking Photos and recording videos except our team was a concern to protect the copyrights of TED.
