"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.” ― Chief Seattle.

For 2013, TEDxPortofSpain has chosen the theme connecting. We will embark on a journey — filled with stories, songs, and lessons-learned – and the inspiration of those who have demonstrated what is possible when we begin connecting. For 12.12.12 we chose to explore theme Courage. Our 12.12.12 speakers definitely gave some talks worth watching. Please click here to watch the 12.12.12 Talks.
