TEDxRoppongi "Broaden Horizons" Limited Release of 60 Tickets

In the spirit of 'Ideas Worth Spreading', TEDxRoppongi is a TEDx organisation in Tokyo that serves as an empowering platform for the community of thinkers and innovators in Japan.

A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions. With the theme of "Broaden Horizons", the 10 speakers are passionate to share their ideas in the perspectives of various fields such as neuroscience, intercultural ethics, politics, ethnolinguistics, entrepreneurship, effective communication, and personal transformation.

Along with these talks, TEDxRoppongi hopes to share ideas and concepts that challenge the traditional expectations and mindsets of the Japanese society that allow young generations to step out of their comfort zones and be exposed to an area of interest and difference.

Shoin Wolfe: The risk of playing it safe
