“We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
- Albert Einstein

From "Taiwan Stories" in 2009,"Unlearn.Play.Inspire" in 2010, to "Big Hope for Next Decade" in 2011, TEDxTaipei brings you insights and foresights each year. We also organize seminars and lectures on campus, to encourage and inspire younger generations. In the past three years, we have heard more than 100 moving stories. These clips, collectively, build up a database for Taiwan, and also reflect the momentum of this era.

With community engagement, we aim to spread these stories from Taiwan to the world. It is a good channel to know Taiwan and the universe. In the past years, numerous TEDx events are set up under the same belief. We appreciate all participants and contributors.

What are contemporary stories? What is our message to the world? What we decide will move our future.

SPEAKERS

Seven Topics in TEDxTaipei 2012

Co-Create,Co-Living

In uncertainty, we discover new business models and lifestyles. In sustainability, we live with environmental awareness.

Land and People

In this ever-changing world, we tend to overlook the underpinning values of humanity. The fundamental bond between human and land is also blurred. It's time to recover.

Open Everything

The world is open in the future, be it technology, design, hardware, software, or your mind. Embrace openness to inspire the best of you.

Education 2.0

Tear down the classroom. We need to reimagine the essence and need of education, in order to reinvent a new model.

Rising Stars

The new generation rewrite excellence and shine on the stage with their talents beyond textbooks.

Love and Compassion

We need a tender perspective towards the world, with our essence and pristine mind.

The Makers

Traditional artisans share their experiences. We celebrate their lifelong dedications.
