It's TEDxSingapore's 10th birthday this year, Singapore's Bicentennial and our 54th birthday. We are curating a series of 'Ideas Worth Discussing' TEDx salon events around important and inspiring themes. This National Day month we kick off with the theme: "So As To Achieve Happiness". Why? Everyday and everywhere across the island, we make this pledge. Yet, how much time and effort do we spend to be happy? How can we be happier in life and work? Do you want your children to be happier? Do we really understand what happiness is? and many more questions. Join us for an afternoon of Happiness featuring a 100% community-created Museum of Happiness, a community discussion facilitated by the I'al Association of Facilitators, a multi-disciplinary panel of experts on happiness, readings by Singapore poets, a pop-up booktique, connections, conversations, and community... This event is dedicated to the late Teresa Hsu who at 113-years young, spoke at TEDxSingapore in 2010.
