For its first edition, TEDxMontrouge looked at the minute moment that allows a switch from shadow to light. It is an idea, a hope, an encounter … the spark represents the beginning of a change, a (re) beginning, and can be produced by all!
Through creativity or the fire of passion, every day people offer sparkling ideas and offer us alternative, positive and inspiring ways. A simple burst of isolated energy that can change our lives, just like those around us. Everyone can be an actor of novelty but how to use it to flourish and move towards a more humane society?
If important changes begin with small individual actions, how alone can we illuminate and shake the minds of thousands of others?
Sometimes it just takes … a spark! (ted.com, 2019)
