Paris Talks: Our Story!

The Project
Paris Talks is an Expats Paris project devoted to ideas about the Future of Humanity.
 
Paris Talks is a conference that’s usually done in the form of short, powerful and inspiring talks (15 minutes or less).
 
It’s a One-day conference where Technology, Entertainment, Art and Science do converge, covering a multitude of topics, from business to education to global political, financial and environmental issues, in English from Paris, The French Capital.
 
The Mission: Sharing Ideas about the Future of our Universe.
Paris Talks is taking a very different approach. We’re bringing innovators together from many different disciplines—Business, science, technology, art & design, environment, education, economy, among others—in a network that promotes the sharing of ideas.
 
We convene this community in intimate, peer-level gatherings in Paris where decision-makers, artists, entrepreneurs, inventors, scientists, educators, futurists, environmentalists, economists, visionaries... do share their most provocative and disruptive questions, and their most promising new ideas, and begin to work together on new approaches to some of the world’s toughest current and future challenges.
 
By doing so, we’re seeking out the ‘genius in the white spaces,’—insights that can only be discovered when people from very diverse disciplines come together, and concepts from one field are ‘mashed up’ with those from another.
