A wide range of ideas and experiences from various disciplines of Science, Technology and Society.The program of TEDxLakeComo 2010 has taken place in three areas. The first area being entitled Reinvented Nature. The control over the environment, the exploitation of resources, the protection of diseases have generated unimaginable advances along with new risks. Today humanity is facing the next step, that of comprehension and that of exploitation of the life mechanisms. The second area has been entitled Overturning Paradigms; using a different perspective and overturning consolidated models of interpretation of our world is an exercise that can lead to an approach to reality that is both constructive and efficient. The third and last area has been called Looking Beyond, now considered to be urgent for a society in which institutions, businesses and individuals find it harder and harder to create objectives beyond the short term.
The format of TEDxLakeComo 2010 will include two conversation breaks, a lunch and a coffee break, during which the participants have interacted among themselves and with the guest speakers.
