The actual application.
Before I dive into that, I just want to reaffirm my intention as a speaker. A few years ago, I wanted to follow a designer that would speak about thoughtful design, sustainability and the social impact of our work. Long story short, I didn’t find anyone and “decided” to step up. As a big introvert, not the easiest decision for me.
So, back to TEDxCasey: this is what I wrote. “My topic will be around the lines of “I can design a better world, with my own two hands”, a talk that will highlight opportunities do to better, be better and change the way to design and consume. All we need is a mind-shift. I hope to inspire with my words. Most of the talks around climate change are doom and gloom, I want to focus on what we can do, can change and can build.”
Looking back, I find this quite vague! Next will be the acceptance phone call and the very first TEDxCasey meeting, setting the guidelines for the talk.
