Today @ Athens Megaron: TEDxAcademy 2017 – ‘Our Best Self’
TEDxAcademy 2017 – ‘Our Best Self’ | 30/09/2017 - 14.00 - Megaron
This year TEDxAcademy wants to ask the simple questions.
Are we making a big enough impact in the world? Do we make a meaningful difference in the lives of others in our community? Everything begins when we dare to show up as the best version of ourselves. This sounds simple but it requires vigilance and demanding effort. When we are at our best selves, we pursue the future with courage, profound human connection, imagination thrilling possibility and understanding. Because ultimately, this is why we are on the planet: For each of us to show up as the best person we can be – not for selfish reasons, but because our communities and the world deserve our best efforts to help them become better.
All about TED
TEDx is an annual event where some of the world’s leading thinkers and doers are invited to share what they are passionate about. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design- three broad subject areas that are, collectively, shaping our future. And in fact, the event is much broader, showcasing ideas that matter in any discipline. Attendees have called it “the ultimate brain and heart experience” and “a journey into the future”. The diverse audience, comprised of CEOs, scientists, creatives and philanthropists, is as extraordinary as its prominent TED speakers, such as Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, Paul Simon, Sir Richard Branson, Philippe Starck, Bono, Sergey Brin and many others.
TEDx in brief
TEDx is a Program of local, self-organized events that bring people together in order to share ideas worth spreading. At a TEDx event -where x stands for any independently organized event-the TED conference only provides general guidance. TED talks, videos and live speakers unite to ignite a deep discussion and mutual exchange of ideas. Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the world’s largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created. First organized in 1983, after the promise of Nancy Brinker to her dying sister that she would do everything she could to end breast cancer forever, the Komen Race for the Cure Series has grown from one Race with 800 people in Dallas to a global series of more than 150 Races with over 1 million people participating on four continents.
