Design like you give a damn: Nille Juul-Sørensen at TEDxCopenhagen

Let’s start shaping the future.

We need to start designing a future for ourselves that is inclusive and where we take care of our resources so we can live a life in balance with nature and the technology that will surrounds us. A vision for the future, including the total population on planet Earth. We shall not ask what the future will be – we should ask how can we shape the future that we want for our children and us. We are all creatives and we all have the capability to start shaping our future so it will be fun, exciting, and playful and gives us time to socialize with family, friend and to develop our society.

About TEDx

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
