What kind of a difference can one idea, one day, or one person make? The realities we live with every day may seem impossible to change, but are we aware of the power that one small difference can make?
This April, TEDxCarthage 2014 will look for the answers to these questions and more in a new edition entitled “The Differences We Make.” Since 2010, we have featured some incredible difference makers from Tunisia and around the world. They may stand alone while onstage, but we know the differences they’ve made are part of a much larger web of changes, big and small, happening all around us.
In Tunisia today, this invisible network of people and ideas making a difference is more important than ever, as Tunisians struggle to meet the challenges of rebuilding their country. With so much work to do, every day counts, the actions of everyone matters, and no difference made can be too small.
This April, we want to celebrate some of these doers and share the ideas that are powering their work. This spirit has fueled TEDxCarthage since its first edition back in 2010, during a time of oppression in Tunisia. But against the odds, TEDxCarthage held its first edition three months before the revolution, and established itself as a dynamic Tunisian institution. Since that time, TEDxCarthage has covered issues of tolerance and trust, highlighted the achievements of women in Tunisia, and spawned a string of TEDx events across this country.
Now, TEDxCarthage has grown into a vibrant community of people eager to make a difference. This year, we want to show how powerful this group can really be, by looking beyond the work of just one person and focusing instead on the constellation of changes they are making every day.
