On May 15, TEDxZagreb was held in the Croatian capital’s Lisinski Concert Hall. Nearly a thousand attendees convened at one of the region’s largest annual TEDx events to explore how they can BUILD.FUTURE.NOW. 20 speakers presented on the theme, offering an array of insights and lessons—from fighting prejudice with humor to making large scientific advances through the study of bacteria.
Around a dozen Croatian TED Translators attended TEDxZagreb, including Ivan Stamenković, who joined the speaker lineup with his talk “I’m a translator, what’s your superpower?” Through the story of his personal experience with TED Translators, Ivan detailed the project as well as the transformative power of volunteering. Check out his full talk here.
Ivan and TED Translators clearly made an impact on TEDxZagreb’s audience and organizers, as Karlo Matic, the event’s license holder, is now reportedly discussing a possible large transcribeathon for all Croatian TEDx talks.
