What is TEDxKathmandu
TEDx events have been organized in over 60 countries and about 800 cities till date.
The reason Kathmandu needs a TEDx event is simple: with our absolute obsession with politics, most discussion that could otherwise have been very useful are always somehow embroiled with politics. It is impossible to talk about bringing an educational reform without bringing the issue of political interference in the sector; when discussing about the development of contemporary Nepali music, it has to invariable be expressed in terms of current political scenario. While open political discourse is essential for a vibrant democracy, it's time we moved beyond that and talked to those making actual change.
The theme for TEDxKathmandu 2012 is Nepal 2030: Innovation, Change and Sustainability. Considering the turbulent state of our country today, we hope that TEDxKathmandu will be a platform to optimism, hope and positive ideas among our audience.
