The theme for the first edition of TEDxFORESchool is “Past. Present. Future?”
One of the many interpretations which compelled us to choose this theme is that our past has

It’s important to understand that sustainability is not about trying to solve something negative
but actually about trying to create something positive. It cannot be moral sacrifice or a political

a society we are past the time when discussions alone can improve things; we know the
challenges now and we need people who have answers.
