Generating innovations from the most unlikely places | Aisa Mijeno | TEDx Ruhr University Bochum

#tedxrub2019 #embracetheunexpected #saltwaterlamp

Aisa Mijeno talks about the evolution of entrepreneurial ideas in the Philippines, a country where 25% of the population live below the poverty line and a place which was struck by various natural disasters. She explores the reasons for this undying entrepreneurial spirit and sheds a light on a number of successful social enterprises, not leaving out SALt, the social enterprise she founded herself.

Aisa Mijeno is a faculty member of Engineering and the Innovation Labs Director of De La Salle University – Lipa, member of Greenpeace Philippines and founder of SALt, a social enterprise which focuses on replacing the kerosene lantern as the main source of lighting by a sustainable, ecologically designed, metal-air based lantern that is activated by the most abundant natural resource, saltwater.

TEDx RuhrUniversityBochum was started in 2016 by a group of students enthusiastic about bringing the TEDx format to the Ruhr Area. In May 2019, we turned our TEDx conference into one of the largest TEDx events in Europe organized by students. We connected over 1,000 people at our TEDx event and brought 13 speakers to Bochum who presented their ideas and visions regarding the motto "Embrace the Unexpected".

„Embrace the unexpected“ is not just a theme, it is an attitude.
It is to look courageously and curiously towards the future and confidently embrace the manifold challenges of our time. To understand the new and unexpected as a learning opportunity for progress and not as a source of uncertainty. Such an attitude is needed in a rapidly changing world, now more than ever.
