Snapshots from TEDxTokyo

TEDxSendai 2012 Theme:
Natural Disasters

On March 11, 2011, the largest earthquake in Japan’s history, measuring a staggering 9.0 on the Richter scale, wiped out thousands of lives and erased entire communities. Almost 18 months later, in Sendai and the Tohoku region, people are rebuilding their lives, but the lessons from that time are still fresh and resonate across East Asia to countries in the Pacific Ring of Fire and across the world as people in communities rich and poor face similar cataclysms and extreme weather events.

TEDxSendai will focus on the theme of natural disasters. In a tightly choreographed 3 hours, TEDxSendai will bring together some of the most interesting thinkers and leaders from the worlds of business, art, politics and science to share a message about disaster recovery, resilience, and hope. This theme will be explored from multiple perspectives and contribute ideas worth spreading from Haiti to Japan.

Welcome to TEDxSendai

TEDxSendai is a TED-licensed event that will be held in Sendai, Japan. It will take a multidisciplinary look at natural disasters and bring together a diverse group of global and local thinkers and doers to share their perspectives and ideas on an important development challenge.
