TEDx Academy – ATHENS


This year we invite dreamers, thinkers and doers to join us in the conversation about Discovery.
Discovery is the act of detecting something new, or something “old” that had been unknown.
With reference to science and academic disciplines, discovery is the observation of new phenomena, new actions, or new events and providing new reasoning to explain the knowledge gathered.
In simple words a continuous process to understand the world, life and ourselves.
A path that leads us from the cosmos all the way to our neighbor next door. From the depth of the oceans and ancient civilizations all the way to discoveries in molecular science and to new possibilities for people, life, our ecosystem and civilization.
Questioning is a major form of human thought and interpersonal communication, and plays a key role in discovery. Discoveries are often made due to questions.
So this year, TEDx Academy event will answer questions or form new ones that will lead us to new discoveries…
The TEDxAcademy program in Athens – in its third year – helps amplify the need for change that Greece needs today.

TEDxAcademy in Athens is a nonprofit organization devoted to making a difference in a country that is undergoing historical change.We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we’re building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration not only from the world’s most inspired thinkers, but also from a community of Greeks –  curious souls – to engage with ideas and each other. TEDxAcademy started out last year as a conference at the Benaki Museum bringing together people from the fields of science, technology, art, business but since then its scope has become ever broader.Game-changing innovators from around the country join internationally renowned speakers to become part of the TED community in Greece and, with the community’s help,  maximize the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.  Speakers are drawn from many disciplines that reflect the diversity of TED’s members: technology, entertainment, design, the sciences, the humanities, the arts, NGOs, business and more.

The TEDxAcademy program is designed to bring together such innovators-changers and trailblazers who have shown unusual accomplishment and exceptional courage – yet – some of them are the people next door. The program targets individuals of all ages and disciplines to join in this year’s exciting program.
