ON SEPTEMBER THE 15TH RE-FUTURE OPENS THE 'POROUS BORDERS' TEDXROMA

15 September 2018


... a unique experience made possible thanks to the collaboration of six TEDx organizers from different European countries.
Since the beginning of time, humanity has always been “in motion”. Some people move searching for new horizons, others to escape conflict, poverty, hunger, persecution or the effects of climate change, but for many, it is often a complex multitude of such factors driving their movement.

Nowadays we are facing one of the greatest human flows in history. According to the United Nations reports, wars and economic crisis push 33,000 people daily to move from their countries of origin in search of peace and fundamental human rights. Women, men and children die every day on the long journey to salvation in an attempt to cross seas and borders; the physical, political and cultural barriers before them.

Faced with this situation, the TEDx Community feels the need to contribute to the international discussion around such an urgent issue, which has both local and global consequences. For the first time ever then, six Team Organisers of TEDx events, from different cities in Europe, have decided to tackle this topic together in a single format, departing from different geographical and cultural perspectives.
