"Ideal" refers to the vision and hope for the future, no matter how big or small it is, it may be a momentary inspiration, or it can be a kind of accumulation. Everyone has their own definition of ideals, so do you still remember, when was the last time to have an ideal? For what? Our event in 2022 do not have such dramatic or grand speeches, but ideas to enrich your life and mind. We believe that success cannot be copied, but ideas can be passed on. We are back with "Ideal Proposals"!

"Imagine a light, a warmth that slowly flows into your heart, and finally gives you the motivation to dream and run; imagine that it is irregular and has no edges and angles, and it only takes a moment to bring inspiration, that kind of moment that lights up your thinking.” If ideals can be defined, this will be the core concept of TEDxZhongXi’s 2022 event - “Ideal Proposals”.
