About TEDxChange

TEDxChange is a yearly event hosted by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation that addresses themes of health and development. This year we are launching the TEDxChange Pilot Program. Twelve TEDx events from around the world will work together to curate their own TEDxChange sessions at their events. The topics will be vast - ranging from vaccines, polio, malaria, HIV/AIDS to maternal/newborn child health, education, and agricultural development.

About TEDxChange and the Pilot Program

TEDxChange Pilot Program Talks

We encourage you to spread the spirit of TEDxChange to your local communities. Here are some ways you can share these ideas :

  • If you are a TEDx organizer, share the spirit of global change by playing a TEDxChange talk at your standard TEDx event!
  • If you are not a TEDx organizer, share TEDxChange talks with your networks, and engage them in discussion about the ideas that excite you.

Here are some great TEDxChange talks to choose from:

Patrick Ndimubanzi

Women who light the dark
