The second edition of TEDxRio takes place from June 11th to 12th and will unite thinkers of diverse areas of knowledge in order to understand and analyze HUMAN POWER, a force with great capacity to destroy, maintain, and above all, to construct a new planet and a new way of life.

01.FROM BLINDNESS TO PERCEPTION

01.FROM BLINDNESS TO PERCEPTION

This session is dedicated to consciousness and sensibility, tools that guarantee our own survival as individuals and as a society. We invite human beings with super powers in their fields and visions that go above and beyond the interdependence of natural, social, economic and political systems for sustainable development. Together, we are strong. There is nothing to fear.

02. FROM IGNORANCE TO KNOWLEDGE

02. FROM IGNORANCE TO KNOWLEDGE

We leave the information era and enter into the era of knowledge. The goal here is to share experiences that help us as individuals, groups and society acquire the necessary competencies to begin working towards a green economy, renewable and clean energy sources, eradication of poverty. Diverse visions, multidisciplinary paths and the goal of making a difference, sharing ideas to multiply actions.

03. FROM THE VALUABLE TO THE PRICELESS

03. FROM THE VALUABLE TO THE PRICELESS

Its curious that in a time of crisis of values (ethical, moral, etc), talk of “adding value” has never been so prevalent. Are we really giving credit to what is most important? We gather people involved in human development that invest in “being” before “having”, by themselves or collectively, so that we can all value the things that are actually valuable.

04. FROM INACTION TO THE WHOLE

04. FROM INACTION TO THE WHOLE

Develop capacities within people, communities and networks that promote solutions is, in itself, a good solution. It is sustainable. Diagnose problems, prescribe treatments to minimize symptoms and invest in a cure, or better, in the prevention of the damage that we can avoid, transforms us into health agents of the future, creating real miracles in the present.

05. ONE FOR ALL

05. ONE FOR ALL

It is not enough to share, we must participate. Actively. We have discovered in the daily exercise of becoming aware of the collective the power of putting the ideas of a few into action for the benefit of many. And when each does their part for their own development – physical, mental and social – its easy to understand why one swallow doesn’t make a summer.

06. FROM CHAOS TO ORDER

06. FROM CHAOS TO ORDER

In a consumer society, there is no end to the desire to go above and beyond. We create new necessities every minute, thrown out at the exact moment in which we conquer that necessity, creating new and inaccessible desires. There is only one conquest that can be seen as final: self knowledge. When we intimately connect with who we are, we bring out the best that we can offer to others: ourselves.
