Have you ever asked yourself what would have meant living during an era of big changes? Do you think that people were aware of what was going on? Did they know that the steam engine invention would have changed the organisation of the society? And do you think that petroleum industry pioneers imagined the disasters men would have caused to the planet by using it? What I am trying to tell you is that we are in a period of great changes and we have the opportunity to be the promoters of a new Industrial Revolution. This will require a change in economy and a change in the organisation of our society. In other words, there is a structured way to challenge the current crisis. If you are ready to break old patterns and you want to know more about this interesting topic, come and see me the 22nd of February.
What is your favourite TED talk and why?
I didn’t know TED before so I am not able to say what is my favourite talk. What I can say is that i find TED an interesting place to stimulate our desire of knowledge.
