August 13: TEDxXiguan
Built around TED’s ideal of ‘Ideas Worth Spreading,’ TEDxXiguan is a local yet international platform that celebrates great ideas and translates them into action. As one of the oldest communities in Guangzhou, Xiguan (now Liwan) possesses a population of 710,000 and an area of about 63 square kilometers. The richness of its history, culture and wisdom is beyond imagination. Xiguan also offers a window into ‘Xixue Dongjian,’ meaning ‘Western learning spreads to the East’ – a nationwide movement of technology and ideology during the late Qing dynasty. The conference, themed ‘Constructive Disruption,’ will feature inspiring talks by artists, entrepreneurs and scientists such as Xi Zhiyong, who is leading the fight against Zika virus with bio-engineered mosquitoes.
