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 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.
