Theme: Redefine

August 20, 2022
Tanjung Malim, Selangor
Malaysia
This event is open to the public.
Tickets are available.

The TEDx@KYUEM event will serve as the ultimate platform to share ideas worth spreading. This event aims to inspire communication and spark discussions about challenges and experiences that we don’t always get the opportunity to speak about. This event will not only encourage communication among the KYUEM community but will bridge Kolej Yayasan UEM with education institutions all over Malaysia.

Main Theme : Redefine
Redefine means to change the definition of something; considering and understanding things from different lenses and perspectives.
We were born into this world with an empty and clear mind. As we grew older, we acknowledged and defined ourselves based on the influence of our surroundings. Our families, friends, teachers, and even the influence of mass media have shaped us to strictly follow the traditional mindset of the majority and adhere to stereotypes that affect our attitudes and decision-making process. Moreover, our busy lives have limited us from diving deeper and exploring the undefined, leaving us to accept what we know without questioning it.

That being said, it is time to bring change. We need to reflect and come up with our own definition of everything around us. There are no right or wrong ideas. An individual’s unique approach and understanding of a certain issue might even spark a new perspective for someone else. Spending time researching various topics to develop a deeper understanding will encourage us to treat things with different moods, mindsets, and thoughts. It is time to uplift our maturity as we step out of our comfort zones to accept what is beyond our level of comprehension. This way, we will not only realize new values and principles, but we will also be able to positively influence the people around us to act the same by reflecting and redefining.
Our generation needs to integrate and weave modern concepts into traditional thinking and subsequently, reshape ourselves, our society, and our nation with Redefinition.
