Kathmandu, July 9
TEDx Youth Kamalpokhari hosted a TEDx event to promote emerging ideas of innovations, activism, entrepreneurship and literature this Saturday.
TEDx events are fully planned and coordinated independently, on a community-by-community basis. The content and design of each TEDx event is unique and developed independently, but all of them have some features in common. Tedx programmes have been known to help organisations and individuals to spark conversation and connection.
With the major theme of ‘Changing Currents’, the event was held at the Nepal Tourism Board. It featured a variety of individual stories and ideas from eight live speakers, primarily advocating for the essence of change in various aspects in our lives and society.
During the event, Aayushi KC stunned the audiences with her unique comparisons between Hindu story of ‘Laxman Rekha’ and necessity of amplifying our own comfort zones. That was followed by an innovative presentation from Ashim Pandey regarding his ambition of manufacturing green mobility solutions for the urban commuters of the future.
Priya Sigdel prompted the need to accept ourselves rather than seeking approval from others and Bipana Sharma shared her stories of inner contentment from living her dream at very young age, which was received well by the listeners.
Youth leader Ranju Darshana emphasised the importance of right to information and Asish Thakur talked about the ways to bridge the gap between education and employment.
Talking at the event, the coorganiser of the event Ajay Pandey said, “Whenever the society needs to change, youth turn out to be the change maker. The sole purpose of organising this event of TEDx Youth Kamalpokhari is to give voices to those heroes who are the positive change makers of the society with TED experience.”
The programme also included musical performances, poetry and a magical show to entertain the audience present.
