For many centuries, “arctos”, or ursa major and ursa minor, used to literally guide
people to their destination. It was a pint of reference in times when we were still
exploring the world. Each one of us has their own “arctos” to lead them throughout
This “arctos” can be another human, an idea, a lifetime experience or it
can be someone’s passion to explore the world with their own eyes and Melanie our
world a better place. Which is the “arctos” that led a young person to give up on their
life and establish an innovative agricultural company, a cancer patient to win the battle
with his disease, a refugee to get away from war?
There are certainly smaller and bigger “arctos”, but what finally matters is that every one of us finds their own “arctos” to lead them through their own journey in life.
Let’s make TEDxAUEB 2018 the “arctos” for everyone.
