Onet partenaire de la première édition du  TEDx Canebière 2017

As part of our ongoing actions in favour of sustainable development, Onet is supporting the first TEDx Canebière conference. This “Dare to Act!” edition will highlight commitment, boldness, action and innovation aiming to change the world.  

The conference will take place 25th March 2017 at 2:30p.m. at the théâtre du Lacydon. There will be presentations from eight agents of change with concrete innovative projects in a range of areas: scientific research, education, economics, ecology…  

It should be emphasized that this edition of the TEDx will be 100% local with all of the speakers and organisers living and working in the city of Marseilles.  

 

What is a TED/TEDx conference?

TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design) conferencesbegan in 1984 in the United States. In a global world where issues are increasingly communal and technology facilitates sharing information, these conferences aim to give a forum to “Ideas Worth Spreading.” The short and dynamic format of these presentations, between 12 and 18 minutes per speaker, makes it possible to approach multiple themes by popularising them for the general public.     

 

In this way presenters with ideas and innovative projects are held under the spotlight, helping spread these ideas throughout the world. Thinkers and leaders, but also “ordinary heroes,” share their passion and discoveries in this forum with the aim of influencing our lives and the future of the world.  As such,  Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Frank Gehry, Paul Simon, Sir Richard Branson, Philippe Starck, Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Al Gore, Mathieu Ricard have all participated in TED conferences, to name but a few…

 

Since 2009, these expert conferences, known as TEDx, have existed in France’s biggest cities. Organised by volunteers who commit to respecting TED standards and practices, these conferences aim to spread the ideas and initiatives of the world of tomorrow throughout all territories.   

Thanks to the enthusiasm of 13 volunteers TEDx will see the light of day in the heart of Marseilles this March.
