THIS YEAR'S THEME: WHAT IF?
What if..’ is an open question that challenges and provokes to radically shake-up the status quo within the spectrum of Tech, Education and Design, thereby enabling the development of actions worth doing and ideas worth spreading. Examples of such questions are ‘What if..the concept of money were wiped out?’ or ‘What if.. we shifted the concept of education?’
These are very exiting topics and our speakers will be providing such visions, actions and ideas during TEDxAruba 2016.
