At TEDxRoma 2017 we will imagine and design the future for the next 20 years.
2037 is not only the future we are leaving to the new generations, we will see it with our own eyes and experience it through the choices we make, and, in 2037, we will be called to explain the reasons and the underlying meaning for such choices.
The issues that we will face include questions and answers on frontier technologies, on generational change, on the meaning of democracy and its possible decline. We will speak about the dignity of disclosure, the economy of the future, frontier medicine and, of course, of time.
Will it be a future born out of a responsible approach, capable of putting at the core of it, the theme of the ethics of progress as a result to work towards to, to be able to give an improved prospect to humanity?

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 30 years ago, TED has grown to support its mission with multiple initiatives. The two annual TED Conferences invite the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes or less. Many of these talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Sal Khan and Daniel Kahneman.
The annual TED Conference takes place each year in Vancouver, British Columbia. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, the Open Translation Project, the educational initiative TED-Ed. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world get help translating their wishes into action; TEDx, which supports individuals or groups in hosting local, self- organized TED-style events around the world, and the TED Fellows program.
x = independently organized TED events
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxRoma, where x = independently organised TED event. At our TEDxRoma event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organised.
