TEDxChiangMai 2013

Smart Societies

14 September 2013

TEDxChiangMai 2013 is our next main event. Under the theme of “Smart Societies”, a mix of economists, entrepreneurs, researchers, policy makers, technologists, artists, designers and students will share their ideas of what can make our societies smarter. We also have 3-4 speakers that provide an ASEAN perspective and with our (first in Southeast Asia) pilot with schools and universities, we are providing a unique opportunity for 4-5 students to share their ideas on the TEDxChiangMai stage. This event will be in Thai and English with simultaneous translation available via headsets.
