Greetings from TEDxDTU!!

TEDxDTU Speakers Creative
We have the pleasure of introducing to you TEDxDTU 2020 Online, a series of webinars where unique individuals will be speaking on this year's theme Adapt to Change, Change to Adapt. 
The ability to adapt to change is aided, as are all faculties that we prize as essentially human in its path by our ingenuity and technology; though it is often forgotten that we also possess the converse ability of change to adapt, a more conscious process. To be able to acclimate to circumstances is perhaps a key factor in getting through life.

Our lives are these transient dances through the universe, and the acceptance of change that exists in our lives will only make it richer. By adapting to change, and by changing to adapt, we celebrate our experience of life and the knowledge that comes over time.

Life can be difficult to navigate in our fast-moving society. There is no escaping the impact that ‘Adapting to change’ can bring into our lives, but ‘Changing to Adapt’ is the key to a life where growth is survival.

The webinars will be held online from 11 - 18 July 2020.
