Welcome to LIFT issue 56

We’TEDxPhnomPenhmarks the first TED event in Cambodia. We, the organizers, are excited to help make this gathering happen here because we believe in the TED philosophy of sharing “Ideas Worth Spreading.”

We all love watching TED talks and have enjoyed meeting so many amazing, inspiring people. We believe that this first TEDxPP event marks the beginning of a movement to bring more idea-sharing forums to Phnom Penh.

Around the world, Cambodia is often remembered for the ancient Angkor Empire or its more recent, tragic history, and this is one of the many reasons we chose “Building the Future” as our theme. TEDxPP will build on Cambodia’s past and culture and expose us to many global perspectives for how WE can build the future.

Those who are interested in TEDxPP—young Cambodian students being exposed to TED for the first time, TED lovers, social entrepreneurs, and passionate changemakers—YOU are the ones tasked with building the future. Together, we can work to ensure that that future takes us where we hope to go and we hope Saturday’s presentations will inspire action and further idea sharing among this group.

We’re already in the planning stages for the next TEDxPhnomPenh, and we need your help! If you are interested in being part of a future event, email us at info@tedxphnompenh.com. Furthermore, follow along on our website, www.tedxphnompenh to keep updated and informed.
