The ultimate symbol of optimism: The caterpillar that will first live as a chrysalis before its final form. Before the "after" when it takes on the final form of a beautiful and vibrantly colorful butterfly.
In life, we all have different experiences of transformation - collective, individual, and/or deeply personal. Whether a moment, or a wider time era, we will all go through our own transformations,, if we haven’t already. Just like the sun sets every evening and rises the next day, change is inevitable.
In this year's edition of TEDxPatras, we have been called upon to participate in exercises around us. To embark upon a journey of self-discovery in order to realize that the paths we are following are intertwined with change. We will explore, reflect upon, and spread new optimistic transformational prospects, without forgetting the starting points of our own unique journeys and telling our own stories. We are the memory, the perspective and the action - but often, we are their absence.
