Event description

Description

Growth is unavoidable; we see it everywhere. Technology is developing, populations are increasing, tensions are building, cities are widening, seas are rising. We all want to move forwards and fast, because, without growth - decay begins. Doesn’t it?

The concept of growth has been at the forefront of human development for thousands of years, but perhaps it is time we re-evaluated our relationship with it.

Ever since our inception, TEDxClapham has been committed to providing a platform for ideas to grow. A greenhouse if you will for new ideas, perspectives and break through discoveries to educate, motivate and inspire a legacy of change.

Join us on Father's Day, the 17th June at the Clapham Grand Theatre for TEDxClapham: Grow

  • Billie Quinlan
