I have been lucky to get invited to attend TEDGlobal Geneva in december 2015 and the TEDxWorkshops at CERN and UNHCR. This kind of adventure is impossible to say NO so I got a flight to Geneva. This year conference was « Critical Junctures », 15 speakers from future UNO secretary António Guterres to former greek minister Yanis Varoufakis to comedian James Veitch… A very interesting curation hosted by TED’s Bruno Giussani in a former electrical power plant downtown Geneva.
The crowd was mainly composed of TEDx organizers from all around the world, a beautiful event which was a real inspiration to all of us. As usual a deep dive into the future mixing brainy talks, music, technology and humor. TED is the a three star chief when it comes to mix all the ingredients that transforms an idea conference to an impactful experience. The connections made and the discussion that sparcks are truly unique and nurture our inspiration for years to come.
Here are a few talks worth watching:
« Capitalism will eat democracy — unless we speak up » by Yanis Varoufakis
« This is what happens when you reply to spam email » by James Veitch
« Refugees have the right to be protected » Q&A by António Guterres and Bruno
