    BIG TIME | EFFERVESCENCE

    April 5th, 2015 – Palais des Congrès, Tunis – TUNISIA

Welcome to the Big Time – A place where the boundaries of what we know and do is being tested, and where the future is being rewritten right in front of our eyes.No need to go anywhere, you’ve already been living in the Big Time – and this year TEDxCarthage is going after the big questions of what it means to be alive at this moment when our once-dependable relationships with science, technology, history, culture, and even life itself, are evolving rapidly.We can feel these shifts happening around us, and over the course a new edition of TEDxCarthage, we’ll feature some of the innovators making it all happen, and hear from the visionaries showing us what’s coming next.After all, what better time to look at the big picture than right now, with TEDxCarthage celebrating its 5th anniversary this year. Over the last five years we’ve heard from Success Stories, tried to re-Imagine History, looked at InTolerance, explored Trust as a New Currency, searched for the Spark behind Tunisia’s leading women, and reflected on the Differences We Make.

Five years of talks at TEDxCarthage have let us experience how people in Tunisia and around the world are responding to some of the big questions of this Big Time moment we find ourselves in. Now as we mark this 5-year milestone and press on ahead, let’s push against these boundaries we think we know, and discover the great ideas that will rewrite the next five years, and beyond.


Bienvenue en pleine Effervescence. Ce moment que nous vivons où ce que nous faisons et savons est remis en question. Et où le future se réécrit là, juste en face de nous. Plus possible d’y réchapper, nous vivons déjà au cœur même de cette Effervescence.
Cette année, TEDxCarthage part à la recherche de réponses à certaines grandes questions provoquées par cette Effervescence et de ce que veut dire vivre dans ce moment d’Effervescence alors que nos relations avec la science, la technologie, l’histoire, la culture et avec la vie elle même évolue à une vitesse surhumaine.
Nous pouvons sentir se changement autour de nous et à travers cette nouvel-le édition de TEDxCarthage, nous présenterons certains des innovateurs qui créent ce changement et rencontrerons des visionnaires qui partageront avec nous leur idées de ce qui reste à venir.
Après tout, quel meilleur moment que ce moment même pour s’attarder sur une vue d’ensemble alors TEDxCarthage fête cette année ses 5 ans d’existence e Tunisie.
Au cours des 5 dernières années, nous sommes allés à la rencontre de sujets aussi variés et complémentaires que Success Stories, nous avons tenté de ré-imaginer l’histoire avec Imagine History, nous nous sommes interrogés après la révolution sur InTolerance, nous avons exploré en 2013 la notion de confiance notamment à travers la grande tendance de l’économie collaborative avec Trust as a New Currency. Nous sommes aussi allés en 2013 à la recherche de l’étincelle chez les femmes Tunisienne avec TEDxCarthage Women et son thème. Enfin, nous nous sommes interrogés en 2014 sur comment chacun peut apporter sa pierre à l’édifice avec le thème Differences We Make.
5 ans d’organisation de TEDxCarthage nous ont permis de découvrir comment le Tunisien mais aussi le reste du monde répondent à certaines des grandes questions de ce monde en pleine effervescence.
Cette année, alors que les 5 années de TEDxCarthage marquent pour nous une étape importante, nous continuons d’avancer, de repousser les limites de ceque nous croyons savoir et partons à la découverte de ces grandes idées quiré-écrirons les 5 prochaines années et probablement bien plus encore.
