About this event

TEDxUNC: Global Initiative is a conference based on the concept of creation through connection – generating new thought on global issues by connecting existing resources. TEDxUNC will be held on January 21, 2012 in the FedEx Global Center at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

At TEDxUNC, innovative thinkers, from both our university and the greater community, will discuss their approaches to some of humanity’s fundamental concerns. Their creativity stems from linking resource networks, exploring across disciplines, transgressing cultural boundaries, and seeking simple, tangible solutions.

Their talks, conducted in the format of a traditional TED event, will challenge preexisting conceptions of global problems and will inspire listeners to take initiative.
