TEDxTokyo 2015 Public Viewing

Public Viewing

Applications for this event have now ended. Thank you to everyone who has applied to join our event. We will notify all applicants whether or not they were successful by email on June 26th.

This year we again played around with our TEDxTokyo model and did the counter intuitive thing. We made our long day shorter, and changed it to the evening. We decided to nurture our curiosity through exploring new ways to deliver and share our ideas. We will be hosting this new style of TEDx live online. For those who want to enjoy a salon-style experience on the 8th floor at Hikarie, you can apply by answering one of these 3 questions.

  • What is Japan’s biggest challenge?
  • What is your idea worth spreading?
  • What can you do make a change in Japan?
