On Earth Day 2012

Yesterday, April 22 many people gathered to celebrate “Earth Day” in order to call for a stop of human action and creativity in the process of transforming our planet.  Fortunately, against these destructive minds and philosophy many men and women have been working to show why the transformation of the world is something good, positive and beneficial for all of us.

I invite you to watch this wonderful video titled “If I wanted America to fail”

Furthermore, I also invite you to read the essay written by Alex Epstein (Founder and Director of the Center for Industrial Progress) in which he elaborates why human transformation of Earth is the product of our success in being more efficient and productive.  Because as Epstein wonderfully elaborates,

“It is only through technology–transforming the world around us for human purposes–that we eventually lessened that load. Technology, by creating a human environment in which our goals are easier to accomplish, buys us time–time to enjoy ourselves as we please, or time to create more technologies that will buy us even more time by improving our environment even more.” Read his essay here

Coming in November 20 the TEDxYouth Events!

 

 

TEDxYouthGuatemalaCity

In November 20, 2011 TEDx organizers across the globe will host events for (and by) young people. These TEDxYouthDay events will vary widely in size, format and theme, but they will share a common vision: inspiring curiosity, igniting new ideas, empowering young leaders. A group of my friends is organizing the TEDxYouthGTCity that will emphasize on the theme of Heroes (who they are, what are they made of, and what do they do).

If you are in Guatemala and are interested in participating please register in this form.  They have limited seats for this conferences that promise to be fantastic!!!
