Giới thiệu

You’re invited to get inspired at the latest TEDx event in Hanoi, taking place on 2nd June at the United Nations International School (UNIS) Hanoi in Ciputra.

TEDxHanoi 2018 is a day-long experience for people who care about ideas, connections and curiosity. Join us and hear from some of the most intriguing speakers from Hanoi and beyond as they explore this event’s theme “Toward to a Global Community”: Connect. Enable. Inspire.

The world is becoming a smaller place. It’s easier now than ever before to move commerce around the globe; to study on foreign soil; and most of all to share ideas. This year’s TEDxHanoi conference will explore the theme of humanity living as one globalized community.

Our world has become inextricably linked together. So how do we ensure the best for our local community in this larger web? How do we ensure the best for this global community as a whole?

Throughout June 2nd, our lineup of expert speakers will share their visions for their local communities, and for the wider one that we are all a part of. From their unique backgrounds in business, education, research, tech and the arts, their perspectives will each offer a piece of the puzzle to the riddle of how we manage and participate in a community of such scale.
