An amazing conference is taking place today, a conference that will showcase the extraordinary talent, passion and creativity behind our children and youth. That conference is [email protected]!
So what does this have to do with Yoga? Well… absolutely nothing! But I has everything to do with community and imagination!
[email protected] is an extension, an independent community of Ted.com, the globally recognized “Ideas Worth Spreading” phenomenon. Our conference is unique as kids are involved in everything! From filming and production, to photography, to design, to well….everything!
[email protected] is a platform for facilitating opportunities to empower kids and support authentic learning. Some of British Columbia’s most awe-inspiring kids will share their experiences and inspire others to follow their dreams.
Our vision is to visualize a world in which the kids have been invited to explore their passions. A world in which they’ve been granted the right to influence decisions impacting their lives. A world in which they stand up with adults as equals and use their creativity and skills to make a brighter future for us all!
Each speaker has based their riveting talk centered around one of four themes, and let me tell you – these speakers are amazing! Being a speaker myself (1 of 2 adults), I can say in all honesty – these kids ARE EONS MORE AMAZING THEN ME!
We invite you to Play, Build, Reach and Learn together – Great metaphors for life:
Play is about being adventurous, thrilled to explore, willing to collaborate with others, dreaming — in other words, it is about immersing yourself in the world with the body and the senses.
Build is obviously about being creative, but also being innovative, eager to put your hands on tools and driven by beauty in shaping the world around you — it is about applying the passion and skills.
Reach is about understanding others and self, being compassionate, accepting everyone for what they are, helping those in need — it is about giving from the heart.
Learn is about being curios, inquisitive, thinking critically, courageous to fail, strong to stand up — it is about understanding the world and building the mind; it is about being yourself/being authentic.
If you are feeling in the need for a little inspiration, I encourage you to visit our live stream and watch these amazing speakers. This is the stuff great leaders are made of, prepare to be blown away!
