We live surrounded by chaos, post-truth, fear, corruption, loss of values, injustice, ignorance, discrimination, hypocrisy…. We know that, behind this thick haze, a new world is possible; more than ever, we need to switch on the light to harmony, truth, security, happiness, justice, understanding, reason… and it’s in our hands. Sometimes, it just takes to push a button.

We can provoke this change, and being a part of this change is the proposed theme for TEDxVitoriaGasteiz in 2018. Do you dare to push the button? Switch on the light!

The workshop will show an interpretation that allows us to get to know each other through sports and other areas. Understand how we function, what happens to us, what we feel and what provokes it, the type of relationships we maintain with others, what situations limit us and enable us. Learning to know ourselves allows us to question ourselves, expand our horizon of possibilities in sports, work, studies and life.

Todd Hannula - Businessman My Curious Death: Questions for creating a richer life I died on September 12th. How I came back from dead and the fact that I did had an effect on me, those around me, and even my extended network that was unlike birth, near death experiences, or even death itself. In different ways, we all became profoundly aware of the misdirection of our typically fast, successful lives — *we were missing out on the beautiful unknown of living a slow motion life full of connectedness and empathy.
