About this event
On June 14, 2012, TEDxWWF Singapore gives the stage to forward-thinking individuals—inspiring leaders who will share their endeavours and insights that are challenging and changing the way we think, live and work to meet the challenges of living on our one planet.

TEDxWWF aims to deliver an unforgettable day, where people come together to discuss a range of issues, the broad theme being the environment and ways in which people might better live in harmony with nature.

We envisage bringing together exceptional speakers who will share their personal views on such topics as the way in which we treat our planet (good and bad), the survival of species, the responsibility of industry to the environment, creative solutions for how we might live our lives in a more sustainable way etc.

The programme aims to be though-provoking, moving, creative, emotional and essentially positive and uplifting - in the spirit of 'ideas worth spreading'.
