TEDxRobina- Process of Creative Change

There is an unstoppable force that is directing us towards change that no other time in history has ever experienced. This includes changes within health, education, science, technology, art, media and our world-wide economy.

TED is a non-profit devoted to spreading ideas, in the form of short, powerful talks. TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At TEDxRobina, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connections about the "Process of Creative Change". TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world.
