Countdown To TEDxKenyalang 2019
On Sunday 17th November 2019, we will be welcoming thought-provoking, inspirational, and world renowned industry leaders, to explore the theme “Shine For Others” at the Waterfront Hotel Kuching, Sarawak.
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.
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.
