Theme: Big Picture

Tokyo , Japan
April 6th, 2012

About this event

Young force of TEDxTokyo produce TEDxTokyo Change. To tell the truth, the key question that TEDxChange asks, as well as the field of global health and development, is rather an unfamiliar subject to us, Japanese younger generation.

Thus, our team reinterpret the theme and localize the question in order to make it our own business. That is, "How can we draw the big picture as a piece of puzzle?" With that said, we are determined to become more active players to collaboratively serve our society with the rest of the world.

Our team curate a few live speakers who shed lights on complexity of the filed of global health and development, and tell us simplicity of their actions upon it. They will present their belief, strategies, and projects.

-What is TEDxChange-
TEDxChange 2012 is a TEDx event co-organized by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and TED. Convened by Melinda French Gates and hosted by Chris Anderson, TEDxChange will focus on issues surrounding global health and development.
