Take a minute and learn some more about TEDxSTIUHuaHin.
TEDxSTIUHuaHin’s chosen theme is “Stepping Stones”, defined in dictionaries as “a raised stone used singly or in a series, as a place on which to step when crossing a stream or muddy area”. “Stepping Stones” enable generations to create harmony, by crossing rivers, boundaries, and diversity issues. In our community, STIU has always greatly valued building bridges, breaking down walls, through the sharing of ideas and collaboration within the community. As such, TEDxSTIUHuaHin aims to deliver a gateway to –indeed-, be a veritable stepping stone for our community, in order to help one another to cross those muddy areas of understanding, and to build a better tomorrow, together.
“Together we will make this a better world”
