TEDxColumbiaSIPA 2014: Think smaller

Perhaps bigger is not always better. This we celebrate the small: the power of individual actions, local success stories from our neighboring Harlem community and the worlds we cannot see with the naked eye.

TEDxColumbiaSIPA is organized by graduate students from Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA). Our event is designed to spark authentic, impassioned and open-minded discussion in our community.
