TEDxKobe 2017: Spiralling Inspiration

However you perceive them, as things which are different, outside the box or even unpleasant to us, our progress depends on confronting and embracing them. Leveraging such collisions, for stimulation and synergy, can help propel us on a path to further inspiration. The accumulation of this spiralling power turns into a key to making changes happen. So let’s unite, hear ideas worth spreading and forge our own unique and appealing vortex.

Experiences you can enjoy at TEDxKobe

TEDxKobe will hold three sessions, where speakers with Ideas Worth Spreading will share their ideas. Each session contains three to four talks. We hope you will enjoy inspiring and informative talks at TEDxKobe.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDx[name], where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDx[name] event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
