We live in a time where communities change faster than ever. We are all connected, and that gives us a great power to improve our world. Now, more than ever, we can share our strengths and get goals that we could never have reached as individuals.
In this first edition of TEDx RivasVaciamadrid we invite to think about the forces driving the change in society. To do so, we will talk about the reasons that move us to cooperate, or how science helps defend ourselves from the threats that compromise our existence. We will not forget the great visionaries, those minds able to see and imagine things, invisible to others, that have changed our world conception. Finally, looking ahead, we will wonder whether from our individuality we can contribute to increase the collective knowledge, so that we succeed in driving the change towards building a better society.
