TEDxLeiden 2014 Abundance, on 7 November

What would happen when we shift from organizing scarcity to organizing abundance? Abundance is everywhere around us. Think about creativity, energy, water, knowledge, happiness. The challenge is to make it available to the people who need it. What if we are able to breakthrough these challenges . Can you imagine this future of abundance? TEDxLeiden 2014 will be sharing ideas worth spreading by people that already have started to create this future. We dare you to join this sparkling conversation.

About TEDxLeiden

Is a crisis the new norm or are we lacking perspectives to see other realities with great opportunity? Probably both. We need to get used to the fact that there are no simple answers and solutions for many of the issues that we face today. Ok, so what's next? This is where the story of TEDxLeiden starts.

The central theme of TEDxLeiden is the transition towards 21st century societies. We spark deep dialogue to connect people and ideas worth spreading. Starting with the region around Leiden and connecting to the world at large..

We believe that societies of the 21st century are inclusive, diverse, resilient. Societies that keep the value of social, economical and natural capital at sustainable level. Societies that are able to grow our collective and individual well being without introducing systemic issues.

We recognize there is a huge gap between this vision and the world we live in today. However, we live in a time of transition. Exponential times that accelerate towards a global, inter-connected world with unprecedented opportunities and complexities. We believe that sharing ideas worth spreading (TEDx) is a powerful way to bridge the gap.
