SPEAKER ANNOUNCEMENT: DENIS RIVIN
Who shapes our future? And how do you see your own role in determining, what the future holds?
Sometimes it is hard to believe in a bright future. Our planet is struggling under our ways of living. Temperatures and sea levels are rising. Political and societal differences seem as divisive as ever.
Generally, it is not easy to predict, what the future has in store for us. Not even for a futurist – but according to Denis Rivin, there is plenty of reason to keep believing.
That is what he wants to take us through when he takes the stage at TEDxCopenhagen in February: What he believes will shape the future. And why he remains optimistic…
Because while technological advancements are partially blamed for many of the climate problems, we face today – according to Denis Rivin, they will also be instrumental in the shaping of our future: Tech will be a catalyst for awareness and the tool for change.
Join us at TEDxCopenhagen on February 7th, 2019 at Bremen Teater in Copenhagen and take a look into the crystal ball of Denis Rivin – and see how you can take part in changing our future.

"To believe or not to believe"
That used to be the question. Today, believing in something is more complex, constantly changing and evolving. In a society that encourages individual freedom, we are constantly exposed to people who perceive the world around us in a different way. Individual belief is celebrated and although our beliefs may be different we are brought together through the knowledge that belonging is an integral part of personal existence
We are changing and so are the things we believe in and the values we hold. As Western values evolve from the religious to the individual and secular, our beliefs move beyond spirituality. Thanks to innovations in modern technology, a wealth of information is now easy to indulge in. But with an infinite amount of information, truth becomes increasingly relative, causing our beliefs and values to evolve.
What do we actually believe in? Why do we believe? How have our beliefs changed? In the upcoming TEDxCopenhagen event, we want to explore the modern landscape of what we believe in, what you believe in, what they believe in and what it all means to us.
From February 7th. 2019, Bremen Theater, Copenhagen.
