TEDxChiangMai is an independently organized TEDx event operated under license from TED. TEDxChiangMai is more than an event - it is a platform for ideas worth spreading, a dialogue, a call for action, and a community of people who believe in ideas, creativity, innovation and collaboration. Apart from the annual large creativity and idea forum “TEDxChiangMai”, we also organize smaller events & activities throughout the year.
The theme “Our Common Future” blends social and environmental issues and refers to our profound interdependence as humans on earth. The theme highlights the importance of finding a sustainable path development. At TEDxChiangMai, we explore how to find common ground, raise our level of understanding, and create commitment to action.
TEDxChiangMai traces its origins to a small event in 2011. For TEDxChiangMai2018, we will have 15-20 speakers and performers and expect an audience of over 1,000. The speakers are from different fields including science, research, business, technology, and the arts. The talks will be in both Thai and English - we provide full simultaneous translation.Read More
TEDxChiangMai is working with local groups in Chiang Mai to reduce the use of plastic straws and other forms of single-use plastic. We hope that more business owners and the public will avoid using plastic straws. Plastic straws are ranked No.5 on the list of top 10 plastic waste items collected in the oceans.
We chose the four-leaf clover as a symbol of a future where we live in greater harmony with our natural environment. In our poster, a diverse group people jointly caring for the four-leaf clover, represent people cooperating for “Our Common Future”.
Social inclusion is critical for sustainable development and a positive common future. Great things can happen if we listen to each other, respect each other, find common ground, and work together.
Under the theme of “Creating Connections”, we are connecting you with a mix of economists, entrepreneurs, business leaders, social innovators, researchers, policy makers, technologists, artists, and designers and will share their ideas.
TEDxYouth@ChiangMai will be a half-day event on Sunday, 16 November 2014 (at Chiang Mai University). Our highlight will be 8-12 speakers, including students, sharing their ideas on our stage.
This is a smaller event leading to the highlight on TEDxChiangMai 2018. At the TEDxChiangMaiWomen, there are semi live-streaming talks from the TEDxWomen 2017 in New Orleans themed “Bridges”. After watching some of the talks there will be some local speakers in various field sharing ideas followed by a panel discussion. Hosting on November 4th, 2017 at TCDC Chiang Mai from 1 to 6 pm.
