TEDx College of Europe Natolin 2018 - Embracing Diversity

General Admission Description + zł 50.00 Registrations period has ended.

A TEDx event is a local gathering where live TED-like talks and videos previously recorded at TED conference are shared with the community. TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis. A TEDx event is a suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations, and performances that are idea-focused, and cover a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration, and wonder – and provoke conversations that matter. Our goal is to spark conversation, connection, and community.

On 20th of June, we will be Embracing Diversity. And what better place than a community of 29 different nationalities to do it? In this unique and innovative event, you will hear and see more about this essential issue of our modern life through inspiring speeches given by high-level speakers. Different personalities from around the world will thus deliver performances describing how they managed to challenge themselves.

Hosted by Mark DEKKER, an improvisational actor, and passionate entrepreneur, the event aims at exploring the depth of Diversity and address the “elephant in the room”, inspire the society and impulse changes, changes that destruct the walls and construct the bridges. Some of the speakers that our program will feature are:

  • Solomiya VITVITSKA, a news presenter of 1+1 Channel (Ukraine) who has launched a multimedia project “Peremozhtsi” (“Victors”) that tells the stories of Ukrainian soldiers who lost their limbs in the military conflict, raising an essential question of society and a state being poorly prepared for these people.
  • Amel HAMMAMI, a post graduate student at College of Europe. Previously, she has worked as a researcher on radicalization and deradicalization questions. Amel has long-lasting experience as a Human Rights activist, starting from 2006 with the General Union of Tunisia Students, the Tunisian league of Human rights and other civil society actors. She aspires to promote the values of tolerance, diversity, and peace in her society.
  • Roman TORGOVITSKY, a creator of an integrative medical program called “Soma System”, which is based on his Ph.D. research in sleep medicine, brain imaging, and mathematical epidemiology at Harvard University. Roman is the founder of an American non-profit “Healing War Scars” and Ukrainian charity “Warrior’s Heart” in Ukraine. These two organizations use soma system methodology to help veterans to re-integrate into the society.

The event is planned to start at 1 pm and it is expected to last until 6 pm, followed by the dinner at Natolin Restaurant. The ticket’s price includes costs of coffee breaks. The event will be held in English.
