TEDxArendal celebrated the rich history of Norway's Agder region

In conjunction with Arendalsuka 2013, TEDxArendal celebrated the rich history of Norway's Agder region -- an area known for coastal towns and seaworthy inhabitants -- by juxtaposing it with ideas for its future. 

Under the theme "Ancient horizons - New connections," 15 speakers, drew inspiration from the adventurous spirit of Norway's ancient sailors, who brought home new ideas via encounters with new cultures, new cities and new experiences on the sea. Jointly organized by a number of organizations including GRID-Arendal,  TEDx Arendal is a culmination of new and fresh ideas, young innovators and thinkers, and a celebration of diversity, backgrounds, interests, and the ability to change the world.  The event and individual talks were filmed and edited by GRID-Arendal.
