      paths (păthz, päthz, păths, päths): A trodden track or way/ A road, way, or track made for a particular purpose/ A course of action or conduct.

      Life is a road and our life courses are the paths which we follow through time. Parallel, continuous and promising paths. They can be difficult, steep and discouraging. Our goal often seem to be drifting away, but in the end, hopes and dreams enlighten the way and this is how the most beautiful stories are made. TEDxChalkida is such a story, inspired by life itself and its paths. TEDxChalkida “Paths” aims to bring us stories which will make us think, relate to and become inspired by. The more paths we manage to travel the closer we will get to what we really are.

      «It's your road, and yours alone.others may walk it with you,but no one can walk it for you.»


      «Does the walker choose the path, or the path the walker?»

      Garth Nix, Sabriel

      “No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”

      Gautama Buddha


      Be a volunteer and become a member of the TEDxChalkida Team

      TEDx is a volunteer-based initiative. Apply by April 23 and live the unique TEDx experience as a integral part of this world-wide community.



      TEDx is more than an event. Our volunteer action this year is focused on creating awaness about vandalism in our city. #stopvandalism


      #StopVandalism is the motto that will lead our path. The team will make the first real step and clean a wall of the Court House in Chalkida. The event will be sponsored by Krimatoglou S.A. which will provide the supporting materials. The event will take place at a date that will be announced. We choose the Court House as a symbol in our action against vandalism, a beautiful building that was renovated recently and it is already destroyed by tasteless, ugly drawings.


      THE TEAM

      ``teamwork makes the impossible happen``...That motto intrigued each one of the TEDxChalkida team of volunteers to shape the first TEDxChalkida community....
