We are pleased to announce TEDxSapporo 2013 in Sapporo City, JAPAN
Theme: Creating Possibility
“The difference between who are you and what you want to be is what you do.
We can never change things unless breaking the existing reality.
To create something, we need to build a new model that makes the existing things obsolete.”

TEDxSapporo is officially licensed by TED Conference. We provide a forum for sharing the best Japanese ideas and innovation as well as stimulation for the country’s leaders and entrepreneurs as Japan redefines its role on the world stage. Inspired by the philosophy of TED, Globalization and Social Activist Dilip BK Sunar founded TEDxSapporo in 2012. Soon after, volunteers similarly inspired by TED’s platform have gathered in Sapporo and have created a working community with the intent of spreading the ideas and vitality of Japan from Sapporo to the world.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSapporo, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSapporo event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. More at : http://www.ted.com/tedx
