A perspective might be a point of view, a way to consider things, in its geometrical and artistic definition, a perspective is a way to depict. It can also be understood as an opportunity, a goal. The notion of change is almost melted with this interpretation. New technologies are constantly rising up, opening us new doors. It is new ways to treat, new medicines, new hopes, but also a change in our perspective on life itself. How do we see the living world currently ? To what extent the understanding of our environment allows us to think of new methods of ecosystem management ? I could be an aim or an utopia toward which we are going, concerning “me” and my personal goals, or “us”, and our goals as Mankind. Choosing a perspective on something, a way to depict something, is limiting ourselves. It is restrictive to have just one and only one perspective about something since limits are created by the way we choose to represent things. This TEDx envent is about how to overcome these limits by changing our perspective and by adopting new ones. We would like to give each person in the audience an opportunity to add a new perspective to their mind, maybe it will modify their perception for one evening or for a longer time.
