Reconsider this

 

SEE THE FULL PROGRAM & SPEAKERS »

Much of our lives in society revolve around things we accept as a given: the earth is round, stealing is bad and we usually put on shoes before leaving the house. These and many more prevailing ideas represent what we call common truths.

Our reality is constantly being created based on a range of truths; from what values we should have, to how we should react in certain situations. We go about our everyday lives without really noticing them, let alone questioning them. The truths that shape our established reality are such a big part of the mundane, that we don’t even consider them anymore.

The TEDxCopenhagen 2016 sets out to change that. Societal conventions and common truths are on shaky grounds. For the upcoming event, we have handpicked a group of inquisitive individuals who dare to ask the bold questions and flip the world as we know it upside-down.

We are at a tipping point, where what constitutes our reality is about to be challenged, reconsidered, taken back into our hands and reclaimed. Breaking away from the prevailing givens of society might, in fact, be the only way to reinvigorate it.

Join us on April 7th.
