About this event

'The Future We Will Make' was TEDxSingapore's sixth idea event.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and more than 80 of us TEDx-organisers around our planet teamed up for a very special global event hosted by TED curator Chris Anderson.

Featuring talks by some of the world's most inspired thinkers and doers, we looked at what changes have taken place around the planet, and what more needs to be done to ensure the health and well-being of future generations.

On Saturday, 25 September, TEDxSingapore brought into Singapore the stream of this entire event + live speakers and music performances, hosted at Microsoft Auditorium and with content partner for the Millenium Development Goals: OneSingapore and Microsoft Imagine Cup
