TEDx Cape Town 'Pause & Effect' Main Event

TEDx Cape Town 'Pause & Effect' Main Event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED Talks created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. 

Charles Darwin and John Dewey give us food for thought with these respective quotes - "It’s not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the most responsive to change; We don’t learn through experience, but rather through reflecting on experiences."

Taking this as inspiration, the theme for the 2018 TEDxCapeTown main event is Pause & Effect. 


It’s been evident through socio-economic movements globally - consider #MeToo, #BlackLivesMatter, #FeesMustFall, #DataMustFall, Occupy, The Arab Spring and The Umbrella Revolution - that every action (positive or negative, big or small) causes shifts in energy and power. And this directly impacts the rate of change in our society.

 
But there’s also power in pausing and considering before taking action, and in taking time to realise we have choices regarding why and how we develop. The result of pausing is often a more mindful approach to what happens after.
 
TED Talks invite design thinkers, artists, activists, people managers, youth development workers, techpreneurs, mompreneurs, financial planners & more, young & more experienced, from all walks of life, to join us as we as South Africans PAUSE to take EFFECT. 


The TEDxCapeTown 'Pause & Effect' Main Event takes place on 17 November 2018 at the Avenue Cape Town Conference Venue at the V&A Waterfront, 40 Dock Road.
