THEME: BUTTERFLY EFFECT
Edward Lorenz, an American mathematician and meteorologist was a pioneer of the Chaos Theory. His ideas conveyed is that the flapping of a butterfly might create minute changes in the atmosphere that could alter the path, delay, accelerate or even prevent the occurrence of a tornado. Thus came the term “Butterfly Effect,” the theme for this year’s TEDx event. “The Butterfly Effect” refers to the concept that small actions executed by a few might not have a significant impact, however, the compounded effect of those same small actions can make a massive difference. Although a simple idea, it relates to our lives in every imaginable way, showing us that even the minute actions we take can translate into big changes in our communities. Even though it is born from statistical forecasting, “The Butterfly Effect” connects well with any area of study, whilst allowing individuals to appreciate the value of acting locally but thinking globally. We hope this theme helps spotlight the impact of small actions, inspiring each of us to start small through positive actions and initiatives and bring a favourable change in the world, in whatever ways we can.
