TEDx Kenyalang 2018 | Outreach The World

On Saturday 17th November 2018, we will be welcoming thought-provoking, inspirational, and world renowned industry leaders, to explore the theme ‘Outreach The World‘ at the Dewan Undangan Negeri Lama.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxKenyalang, where x = independently organised TED event. At our TEDxKenyalang events, live speakers come together to spark deep discussion and connect. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organised.

Why TEDxKenyalang?

Sarawak, also known as “The Land of Hornbills (Bumi Kenyalang)” has been so strongly identified with burung Kenyalang. This is due to the fact that the Rhinoceros Hornbill is symbolic to many native tribes of Sarawak and its feature- the majestic, yellow-orange hornlike casque is very prominent in the Sarawakian culture and customs.

The name Kenyalang represents the diversity of Sarawak and also signifies the conservation efforts to safeguard all wildlife native to Bumi Kenyalang.
