TedxChange: Conversations about Global Health

While browsing the TED website (www.ted.com) for inspirational talks, I came across TEDxChange, a TEDx program organized in collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to spark global conversations regarding health, development and education issues.

Each year, this event focuses on a specific theme. This year’s theme was “positive disruption” hosted by Melinda Gates on April 3, 2013. The idea is that disruption can be a catalyst for change through challenging old assumptions, igniting conversations, activating authorities and exposing new possibilities.

The TEDxChange website provides a list of the speakers at this year’s event, discussing a range of topics including how social media is changing the world and how children became the main agents of change in the slums of West Bengal. I encourage you to browse the website and listen to some of the insightful talks from this year and previous years.
