About the theme
Governments and institutions are increasingly asking the question how to finance the future. Healthcare, education, jobs, food, energy, social security, safety are all showing similar symptoms of instability , unaffordability or lack of scalability. There are fundamental questions about the role of the financial system and its net positive contribution to society. And finally we are growing beyond the planetary boundaries and the pace seems to accelerate. Together this has created a burning platform with big opportunities
So what are the options to build a resilient and sustainable future? What can we do as citizens, governments, businesses, hospitals, schools, energy companies, universities? How can we leverage our social and cognitive capital? How can we organize the surplus? How can we diversify the ways we exchange value?
In this TEDx event we would like to explore some of these questions through the stories of people who share their ideas worth spreading. Through the exemplars that might lead the way. We will reflect and through dialogue explore how this can become a more integral part of our society.
