Forte de Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The second edition of TEDxRio, from June 11th to 12th at the Forte de Copacabana will unite thinkers of diverse knowledge areas to understand and analyze HUMAN POWER, a force with great capacity to destruct, maintain and above all, to construct a new planet and a new way of life.

More than the spreading of ideas and discussing of solutions such as conscience consumption, green economy and reduction of poverty, the goal here is to promote a differentiated reflection about sustainable development through an innovative manifestation of non-formal education.

TEDxRio+20 opens new windows of knowledge, challenging the ?one way of thinking? syndrome, by sharing visions and discussions that are complementary to the Rio+20 Sustainable Development Conference, serving as a platform for connection and, maybe, the start of a movement for social transformation. Does anyone doubt the power that this can have?
