About Us

Ideas have power to change the way we think and live. What does it take to make a difference in the world?

Singapore often punches above its weight. TEDxNUS: “Big Ideas from The Little Red Dot” looks at how out-of-the-box thinking, guts and creative gumption have enabled the country and its people to overcome natural, historical and geopolitical challenges – sometimes through trading on these very limitations – and along the way, provide the world with some very innovative and transformative ideas.

From the technological miracle that is NEWater to the restorative benefits of cloaking an entire country in tropical greenery; from the dynamic vision and creative energies of women to the listing of the enduring heritage appeal of Singaporean street food, TEDxNUS showcases and celebrates the human ingenuity and determination behind the pursuit of creative solutions, and also reminds us that diminutiveness does not determine destiny.
