TEDxXiguan 2018 Conference was a success! See pictures from the event:


We are living in an age that values speed, opulence and success. Life in Guangzhou, one of the biggest cities in China, is emblematic of that. We want it all, and we want it now. We become ever more impatient, we chase after the new and the faster. We only want to see growth - exponential ones. This is causing us to ask another set of questions: Where are we heading with this acceleration? What are we ignoring as all of us is on board of this fast train? What are the details being left out in those grand stories?

We would like to explore these questions, from perspectives including business, technology, charity, education, design… Together we will explore wether there’s another side besides those desires waiting for our attention.
