Pope Francis gives TED talk

TED, a non-profit organization dedicated to spreading ideas in the form of short talks, invites this year Pop Francis to be one of the speakers. What began in 1984 as a conference covering Technology, Entertainment and Design (TED), today provides talks from a wide range of different speakers  for the first time he gives the occasion to a pope to talk in his conference.

Pope Francis began “I very much like this title – ‘The Future You’”, because, while looking at tomorrow, it invites us to open a dialogue today, to look at the future through a ‘you’…The future is made of you’s…because life flows through our relations with others”.
Talking in his characteristically personal and informal style, the Pope reminded of how “everything is connected” and of how “life is about interactions”. “None of us is an autonomous and independent ‘I’”, he said. “We can only build the future by standing together, including everyone”.

The second message he given regarded “educating people to a true solidarity” in order to overcome the “culture of waste” that puts products at the center of techno-economic systems, instead of people. “The other has a face”, he said. “The ‘you’ is…a person to take care of”.

Pope Francis’ third and final message was dedicated to what he called “the revolution of tenderness”. Tenderness means “being on the same level as the other”, he said. It is not weakness, but strength: “the path of solidarity…of humility”. And through humility, even power becomes a service and a force for good.

The Pope concluded by affirming that the future of humankind is not in the hands of politicians or big companies but, most of all, in the hands of those people “who recognize the other as a ‘you’ and themselves as part of an ‘us’”. Because: “We all need each other”.
