TEDx ESSECAsiaPacific 2021:
How can we reconcile
progress and sustainability?
TEDx events are independently organized talks and conferences that aim to share and debate the latest research and ideas. The 2021 installment of the TEDx ESSECAsiaPacific partnership is fully planned and coordinated by ESSEC students.
Sustainability has been delved into countless times in the past few years. This conference intends to discuss the practicalities of sustainable thinking and how to durably implement it.
By considering sustainability as a means rather than an end, this year’s TEDx ESSECAsiaPacific event will feature prominent professionals debating around sustainability in their line of work. With developments in urban planning, medical breakthroughs as well as better, smarter and faster communications the talks will center around the following questions: how can we reconcile progress and sustainability? How can we systemically introduce sustainable thinking at all levels of governance without shackling growth?
