We live surrounded by chaos, post-truth, fear, corruption, loss of values, injustice, ignorance, discrimination, hypocrisy…. We know that, behind this thick haze, a new world is possible; more than ever, we need to switch on the light to harmony, truth, security, happiness, justice, understanding, reason… and it’s in our hands. Sometimes, it just takes to push a button.
We can provoke this change, and being a part of this change is the proposed theme for TEDxVitoriaGasteiz in 2018. Do you dare to push the button? Switch on the light!
