Humans have always pushed the boundaries… without our doing so, much of our modern world and the ideas within it would still be unknown to us.
Join us on June 4th as we bring you the stories of many modern explorers. In their own ways, they’re exploring the frontiers of ideas and actions that help us to better understand and work with the complex systems that surround us: agriculture and food, education, medicine, global conflict, leadership and collaboration, and others.
TEDxCalgary 2011: Breaking Through is as much about the perseverance and discipline of making profound breakthroughs in thought and action as it is about the discovery itself. Our speakers have visited many of the frontiers in their fields, and bring back their perspectives on a crucial dimension of moving forward toward the future: grappling with and improving the many systems within which we live day-to-day.They will open your mind to the possibilities of change that they’ve helped to bring about through their own efforts. More importantly, they will give you a chance to take up the challenge of their work and make your own even more powerful discoveries.
Come and discover with us on June 4th… it’s an enlightening half day of sharing ideas worth spreading, and building connections in our vibrant community.
