TEDxWoman holds a live conference at 17.00 on Friday
Through innovative thinkers, who share big ideas and catalyze action toward them. In one word, with ‘Momentum.’ This is the theme of this year’s TEDWomen event taking place in California, USA and transported through a global conversation to Nicosia, Cyprus through TEDxNicosiaWomen in a strategic partnership with Cytamobile-Vodafone. The event, taking place on 29 May, 2015, at the Cyta Headquarters’ Amphitheatre, is not exclusive to women!
TEDWomen will explore the bold ideas that create Momentum in how we think, live and work. The event will assemble a global community of women and men alike, interested in the innovations, ideas and individuals building momentum around the world. There will be over 150 TEDx events around the world sharing the livestream and presenting local speakers. The result? To reveal the spark that inspires innovation, in celebration of movers and makers; designers and do-ers; local problem solvers and global leaders.
TEDxNicosiaWomen 2015 is a reason to continue celebrating the true essence of women. It is not just about innovation but about how they impact their local community and initiate change. This event will feature ideas worth spreading and it will evolve around women’s lives, work, passion, life philosophy and ideas.
There will be an exploration and emphasis on how women are the driving force reshaping the future. From artists, thinkers, innovators, to loving mothers, women carry the inspiration, dedication, empowerment and motivation it takes to be the creators of local solutions, and leaders of worldwide movements.
Over the past five years, TEDWomen has launched some powerful ideas into the world. In 2010, Sheryl Sandberg gave the talk that led to her groundbreaking book Lean In. In 2011, Jane Fonda gave a mind-shifting talk on the unexpected "third act" in women's lives now. In 2013, Maysoon Zayid gave a hilarious talk about palsy being just one of her 99 problems!
This year's program promises similarly groundbreaking ideas. Women are so often the creative powerhouses driving progress, and the active force crystalizing change in communities worldwide. From small, local solutions to global movements, the power of women's invention is visible in every region, in every field.
As part of the TEDx spirit and community, TEDxNicosiaWomen will be taking place on 29 May at Cyta Amphitheatre at 5:00 pm, and will combine part of the TEDWomen 2015 webcast with live local speakers. This will streamed to www.facebook.com/tedxnicosiawomen via the Cytanet network .
