The third TEDxChalkida will take place in Chalkida on September 28 2019 at the Conference Hall of the Prefecture of Evia, Region of Central Greece, which is located in Haina st, 98 in Chalkida.

Our audience, the so called TEDxSters, is visionary people from different domains and walks of life.The attendance of the event will only be possible after submitting your interest in participating, following the global pattern of TEDx Events across the globe. In case demand is higher than the capacity of the auditorium, there will be specific criteria of attendees’ selection.

“Ethos anthropo daimon”.

“For man, ethics is his patron god” As Heraclitus described back in 6thC BC, it also determines what will happen to us in the future.

Ethos is our character. Our virtue. And passion. Our paths throughout history. The customs of past life and challenges of the future. Our experience and intense feelings. Difficult life choices and the redefinition of our course. Our childhood dreams and our later political consciousness. Ethos is the future.

The personal Paths we mapped (first event theme) paved the way for our second event, Evolution. The cornerstone of evolution is Ethos, the theme of TEDx Chalkida’s third event.

  • In this workshop we will try to communicate the “ethos” and the meaning of sustainability in a very creative way. Through experimentation we will try to perceive the energy that surrounds us; An inventive way of entertaining will help us to approach the concept of sustainability in terms of planning, education and culture. An interactive 3D puzzle specially designed for TEDx Chalkida audience will help us to achieve that.

    This Workshop is about silkscreen and its ways of art copy production and also of original composition; Chariton Bekiaris, who has lifelong experience in this special technique, and Kostas Ζisimopoulos, who has a deep knowledge of this art, will try to introduce the participants to this rather misunderstood technique.
    Chariton Bekiaris has created a unique design exclusively for TEDx Chalkida, which all participants will have the chance to print by themselves on T-Shirts, using the colors of their own choosing.

    Ethos: a word that has its origins in Greek antiquity and philosophy. What did the ancient Greeks believe about ethics, the epicenter of discussions today in the global cultural arena, where sponsorships museums receive from multinational companies are concerned?

    In collaboration with “Greek Travel Tellers”, “Ta nea tis technis” aims to initiate a conversation about ethics and museums with an experiential presentation on the use of ancient myths as a tool for moral education. “Ta nea tis technis” will exchange views with the audience using examples and bridging the gap between antiquity and the modern era.
