The second TEDxBrainport event will take place at the Evoluon, Eindhoven on the 5th of June 2012. An independently organized TED event, it aims to bring ideas worth spreading to a broad audience. This year’s theme is ‘Making the Future’ and TEDxBrainport hopes to inspire attendees from one of the smartest regions in the world to create a better future for us all.
The event will address some of the major problems we face in today’s world: hunger, disease, an aging population, climate change and increasingly scarce natural resources. Conference speakers and performers will present their ideas on how to tackle the world’s problems. They will focus on one or more of the event’s four focus areas: how can we power our planet, how can we feed the world, how can we cure the sick can we cure the sick and how can we protect the planet.
