On November 19th at TEDxLimassol, we will embark on what lies beyond the edge.

 Now more than ever, societies are living on the edge. What lies beyond the edge is both exciting and daunting. Breakthrough innovation and technology, economic, societal and political new world structures, opportunity, possibility. If we can avoid the pitfalls, we are on the threshold of exhilarating change. 

On November 19 th at TEDxLimassol, together we will embark on
what lies beyond the edge.

LIVING ON THE EDGE meets three of the most essential TEDTalk objectives:

To democratize knowledge and science

To stimulate and arouse audiences around the world

To spark deep discussion and connections
